How to run Drive Image 4.0 on an NT4 machine?
Posted on 2002-05-03
I'm on a Dell Optiplex GX400, running NT 4.0 (SP6). My first physical hard drive is partitioned as C: (2GB FAT) and D: (35.2GB NTFS). My second physical drive is E: (37.2GB NTFS). I also have an Iomega 250MB (F:), a CDRW/DVD (G:), and I'm hooked up to a network drive (H:). I have local administrative rights.
If I try to run DI, I get the message “Unable to prepare machine for reboot. Exit code 9. You must run Drive Image from DOS or from the rescue diskettes.”
The DI rescue boot disk runs Caldera DOS. Booted into Caldera DOS, DI cannot see NTFS partitions. (Did it ever dawn on PQ that maybe Caldera DOS isn't such a hot idea?) So, I used the same W98 boot disk I use at home on a machine running W2K. Using this boot disk and the DI Rescue Disk #2, I can run DI successfully on the W2K machine. (I should point out that all partitions on the W2K machine are NTFS.) However, when I use the same boot disk and DI Rescue Disk #2 on the NT4 machine, the only drive DI can see is A: Can anyone tell me how to set up a boot disk and DI rescue disk that will allow DI to see all drives on my NT4 machine?
