Windows 7 64 bit System image restore
Posted on 2011-09-30
I'm sure this is going to be simple, if I had hair I'd pull it out at this point.
I'm driving to "restore" a system image I made of my laptop to a new hd in my laptop.
Old HD 64g SSD Cosair
New HD 320gig HD Toshiba (original HD) (formatted)
backup is on another SSD i had laying around....
Its almost like it wants to restore to the SSD in which the back up is stored.
I see my new HD in the section that gives you the option to exclude, its unchecked.
I click through and start the restore.
THE SYSTEM IMAGE RESTORE FAILED.
ERROR DETAILS: RESTORE FAILED BECAUSE A DISK WHICH WAS CRITICAL AT BACKUP IS EXCLUDED. TO CONTINUE YOU NEED TO EITHER REMOVE THE DISK FROM EXCLUSION LIST OR DETACH IT FROM MACHINE OR CLEAN IT USING DISPART UTILITY, AND THEN RETRY RESTORE. IF YOU CANNOT CLEAN OR DETACH IT THEN CHANGE THE DISK SIGNATURE.
