about Image for Windows 2.66 is there the option to restore the image without change the partition type
i have w7 and in the same hard disk several partition created with xp type
The partition type is 07 (NTFS) but I suspect you mean something else.
Windows 2.66 has lots of options
i would read a tutorial to make an image of w7 ,and the setting to restore the image without change the other partitions
What you see in the GUI is only a fraction of those available. But most users can just accept the defaults.
i mean i want to make an image of my w7
but in the disk there are other partitions created with xp style with acronis disk director 10
now i'm worried about restore the image , because i read the manual
in the restore process ,ifw will change all the partition structure
i want to leave like now
IFW/IFD/IFL will not change the partition alignment if you restore an image into an established partition. It won't mess up your partitions, mantra.
If you restore an image into unallocated space and request 2048 sector alignment, that's what you will get. If you restore an image into unallocated space and request cylinder alignment, that's what you will get.
brian anyway to create a full winpe disc with ifw? i mean like what active@ has or similar?? with command prompt, start button menu etc.... i have tried adding that stuff to the winpe disc created with ifw and some things work but a lot will not due to files missing..and i have on the other hand tried to add the full ifw to active's boot disc and not everything will work properly
but in the manual @page 25
by the way , terabytes windows image 2.66 can work without his service?
is there a cleaner to make a clean install
for sure i can't work in portable version , i guess like drive snapshot
Maybe but I don't know how.
Have you found the Active@ CD boots faster than the TeraByte CD?
You are making it sound too hard.
The section about Win7 MBR only applies to certain hardware. Ignore the option.
Similarly, don't change any of the Geometry defaults. If you don't understand what the Geometry options are, then you almost certainly don't need to use them. Geometry options shouldn't be used for standard image/restore procedures.
What issues do you have?
I do all of my restores in Active@ or TeraByte PE. They are auto restores from a batch file in the PE. From Windows I have a batch file that copies the relevant batch file to the PE via TBOSDT. Then the computer restarts into the PE.
yes imo it does. but i like not being limited by the ifw winpe i love the feature set of the active@ disc with things like command prompts and explorer etc..
is it your want?
sorry Brian , i did not want to be rude
my english sucks
i was just worried about so many options that i don't know
i mean can i run it in portable version to make image online with windows running (in portable version ,the same files i did add to active boot disk)?
mantra, I didn't think you were rude at all. I just meant that you are trying to make a simple procedure appear complicated. I just use the defaults.
but The Global Geometry Settings are enabled by default in the backup & restore
That's fine. Leave the defaults alone.
in the restore i got this option
i'm worried because i have differents partitions types
in the past with another program , acronis , i lost 2 partitions
Don't be concerned about Geometry. Don't bother looking at those menus. They will frighten you. Geometry settings aren't for what you are doing. For example, the settings can be used when creating images of a HD if that HD is not in its correct computer at the time. We don't do that. We are imaging when the HD is in its correct computer.
As you will be restoring images to established partitions you don't need to be concerned about alignment. The alignment will be preserved.
Keep it simple as Brian K. pointed out. It's pretty rare you will need to mess with those settings.
you should be fine mantra
thanks a lot
thanks a lot zfactor napoleon1815 Brian
may i ask my last question ?
is able ifw to backup and restore a truecrypt os partition?
is PHYLock necessary to make an Os image online ?
I am not sure on your first question about the encryption...however, Phylock is not necessary as you can tell it to use Microsoft VSS. However, unless there is a reason, I would recommend sticking with Phylock myself. It's never given me an issue.
