    Help! I ran True Image on my IBM T60 to clone my existing HD to a WD Scorpio 500GB. My system won't boot from the new hard drive and I get errors when trying to reinstall my original hard drive..
    userinit.exe - failed to initialize
    suservice.exe - exception
    svchost.exe - app error

    What do I need to do to get my original drive working again?

    At what stage of the boot up do you get these errors? Can you get into Safe Mode and either uninstall True Image or use a Windows Restore point?

    Is this windows xp or vista?

    If you didn't do a "reverse clone" that might the reason the "restored drive " won't boot.

    As far as your source drive, if all the cables are properly connected, you can try a chkdsk c: /f. If there was some sort of abnormal shutdown during the cloning procedure, there might be corrupted system files. A chkdsk can fix this.

    Hello Gumby812,

    Thank you for using Acronis Products

    As workaround you can perform OS Repair using Windows installation CD. Boot from Windows installation disc and choose Repair option. Windows Repair Installation will keep your applications and configuration untouched.

    Best regards,
