Specs: Windows XP
I backed up my hard drive and want to lay down the image on a new drive. The new drive is larger so i did it by partition and safe boot is killing me - how do i get the image to restore correctly

what are you using for your imaging?

if imaging an entire drive why would you do a partition image?

what is up with going in under safe mode? Did you remove the previous drive and set this one in its position????

Imaging by partition will not make the new disk bootable. You have to image by drive.

FWIW to XP users: When you click on the 'Command Prompt' you are just causing the 'Command prompt' to be displayed. This prompt gives you access to NTVDM.EXE, the 'NT Virtual DOS Manager'.

If the partition is bootable a partition image will result in a bootable xfer. It worked that way with Ghost.

What won't work is leaving both drives in the system and trying to boot the new drive.

A partition image does not copy the MBR.

I think I know what you're thinking, Wanderer. If you image a partition and later restore it to that same drive, that will work. That's because the MBR is still there and matched to the partition.

Sorry not correct. As I said I have done it

"Ghost's cloning feature is typically used to copy the contents of one disk/partition (usually older/smaller) to another (usually newer/larger). Users have reported success with this method. Some caution that, if a boot drive is involved, you must set a partition on the new drive as the ACTIVE partition. You can do this with FDISK."

I agree with every thing you said in your last post, wanderer. :-)
