Here's the scenario... sector 63 seems to be the culprit consistently and we don't know why....

We build an XP PC in a machine with a Maxtor 40GB drive.

We reboot and it works great.  We patch it and reboot and it works great.

We image the machine to a network store.  Great...

We restore the image to many machines.

The image works great on every machine EXCEPT machines with the Flippin MAXTOR drives!!!!!

Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!!

Just for the sake of it, did you try to build the PC on a non maxtor machine and then try that image? Also, I've had terrible experience with disks from maxtor, most of them become paperweights after short usage, most of those were either 20 or 40 GB drives. For larger (newer drives) I have been avoiding maxtor and therefore I don't have much experiance with them.

Thanks for the responses...

rindi - The image does indeed work for NON maxtor drives.

ded9 - The HAL is not the issue as the image will not even restore to the original machine that it was built on. : )

Thanks for the thoughts though!

Do those images you made on the non maxtor drives also work when you restore them to maxtors? Have you tried using another imaging software, like bootit-ng or acronis true image?
