I am running TI9 and it seems that my primary HD is about to fail. So I ran out, bought TI9 and did a full HD image backup. I realize that I could have tried the cloning option, but I wanted to see if this software would work if my main HD was completely corrupted. So I created an image in the acronis secure zone - it grabbed my main partition and then also this EISA partition (not sure what that is for). I then activited secure zone booting and restarted. Pressed F11, everything went in fine. I had a new HD that was already formatted and I restored the image I created onto the new HD. This was all successful - so far so good. Then I unplugged my primary HD that is going bad, and put the new HD with the restored image in it's place (SATA). As windows was starting up it got past the black windows screen with the sliding blue bar, but then when it gets to the welcome screen it just shows "WinXp"... and hangs there. I left it for 20 mins and it wasn't really thinking or doing anything. Any thoughts? Has this method worked for anyone else, or am I going wrong somewhere. I am going to try the cloning option as well, but I would like to be able to boot from the secure zone and put the latest backup onto a new HD.
