Does the SATA drive already have partitions on it? Can Shadowprotect see the drive, or might you need to add the driver for the SATA controller (or maybe select "Comaptibility mode" or IDE-Mode" or something similar in the BIOS)?

it was a brand new un partitioned hard drive - i created a primary partition, then formatted it with SP - after first failure i deleted the partition and made one ~100 Gb in size with the smame results.
SP has no problem seeing the drive as it does the full restore and its not till the HIR section starts that the trouble begins.

First of all don't create any partitions before restoring the image, ShadowProtect should do that itself. Then it looks like the system tries to load the windows drivers for the controller (the XP driver, not the driver ShadowProtect uses for itself). I don't remember how SP handles this exactly, you might have to provide the yourself at some stage via USB key or floppy, so it can inject the driver into the OS. If you can't find such an option, set the BIOS not to use enhanced, AHCI or RAID mode.

What was the size of image source drive? Was it the same or smaller size?

Thanks all - I have found that this is a problem with ver 4 of SP and the way around it it to use the IT version for the restore then it works great. (which  I had purchased earlier in the year)
I just restored 2 computer using it
