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.

Format and initialize the 1TB harddrive first
then go for image deployment
