Backup by Drive Image

I have windows 95 and Windows NT workstation 4.0 installed in my computer. I tried to use Drive Image to back up the whole C drive to another separate Hard Disk, which name G drive. I didn't convert my old Hard disk to NTFS when I install the Windows NT. I put both Win95 and WinNT in C drive. I ran through the program and create an image file (about 500 Mb) without getting any error message. I put it in G drive. However, when I restore that image file back to a new formatted hard drive (I format this new hard drive under MS Dos 6.22), I have windows 95 run exactly like before without, any problem. But the problem is I can't go to Win Nt anymore. When I run NT, all I get is a death blue screen and I can't do anything. There is the first two line of the error message I get in the Death Blue Screen:

***STOP: 0x000007BC,0xF7813BD4,0x00000034,0x00000000, 0x00000000)
INACCESIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
..
..
..
.
.


Is that mean my Windows NT is no longer working at all? Actually, I try to reinstall the Windows NT again. All I have is the same error message. Do you have any idea how to fix this problem. Do I need to do anything before I restore the image file to a hard drive? Or I must convert my C drive to NTFS first before I do the image file in Drive Image?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much, you have good day.

Joe

Your problem could be your Arc path wich isn't correct anymore, because NT moved to another drive partition ...
Check your boot.ini file in the (nt) root directory.
check for the correct disk(),partition() entries.

Antoher thing  ->  try avoiding drive image ... it behaves wierd
sometimes  (had some probs myself as well)
you really should go for Ghost Pro wich is much faster and stabler
