Following on from a corrupted Windows XP installation on a single partition C: drive, I needed to reinstall Windows XP. Because there were files in the original Windows XP installation's folders that I needed to retain, I created a second partition on that drive and reinstalled to that partition. That installation completed successfully. I then made a True Image backup image of the entire partition 2 with the intention to move my new Windows XP installation to partition 1 when I had recovered the files I needed. Periodically as I added applications I made further complete back-up images. I have now recovered the files I needed and used the True Image wizard to restore the most recent backup of partition 2 to partition 1 and I have edited the boot.ini file to allow me choose to boot into the XP install on partition 1 or partition 2. That all works. However, shortly after I boot into the Windows XP installation on partition 1 (remember this is a copy of that on partition 2), I get an error message concerning the svchost.exe file, and the event viewer reports that some Windows services have shut down. I have tried restoring some of the earlier back-up images and each present me with the same problem. Clearly there is an issue in restoring a back-up of one partition onto a different partition that I am not clued into. Has anyone been down this road before or does anyone know the cause of the problem and a resolution?
