    I needed to increase drive size on my RAID 5 workstation. I recreated the volume and restored all 3 partions. I made the C drive the active partion. The restore was uneventful, but when the RAID goes to boot it tells me it cannot find the ntldr.

    Any suggestions?

    This may help. I believe this may have to do with the old "invisible dell partition" apparently the boot.ini is calling the C drive partition 2. Since I am not restoring the Dell partition, I think it is looking to drive E (now the second partition), instead of C, now the first patition, for the boot files.

    Is there a way to edit the boot.ini with acronis?
    Should I try Bart?
    I clearly will need some raid support to do this.

    Thanks

    Hello gejfay,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Corporate Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for delayed response.

    We may recommend you the following workaround:
    - Boot your computer with Acronis Bootable Rescue Media;
    - Back up the boot.ini file separately to some kind of removable media;
    - Restore it on some other computer and edit according to your restored computer current setup;
    - Back up the edited boot.ini file;
    - Boot your restored computer with Acronis Bootable Rescue Media again and restore the edited boot.ini file in place of the existing one.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.

    Can't believe I didn't think of using file restore.
    Thanks!
