partimage and MBR

Post by guest » Fri Aug 20, 2004 8:12 pm

I created an XP image using partimage and then restored on a bran new hard drive. Howerver when rebooting it didn't boot it stayed at blank screen. I then booted up in XP recover console and ran fixboot and then brought down the image again using partimage. this time it worked great. I though partimage copied the MBR. am i doing somthing wrong?

Thanks!

If the hard drive is not the same the restored mbr don't work with the new hard drive.

So you have to use fixboot, it's seem to work with scsi and ide but not with raid.

Hello,



I've got trouble with new HD MBR ! Even after fixboot or fixmgr from console, boot failed ... But I've created partition with linux fdisk, not from windows diskpart. So I'll try with this stupid MS tools :-p...
