Acronis recovery

Using Acronis 10 I made an image backup of a 750GB HD.

I then attached a brand new 1TB drive to restore to.

When it comes time to select a destination, the 1TB drive is greyed out.

Any thoughts?

I have a machine that I attached the original drive to (via USB).  I made the image to the machine.

I then hooked up another drive (I am now trying a 500GB drive to no avail) and am trying to copy to.

I switch from 1TB to 500GB as the sector size of the 1TB was 4096 and the 500GB is 512.

The image size is 38GB.
