windows 2000 image

Last Modified: 2016-10-27
I tried creating a disk image of an old windows 2000 machine using Acronis. However, it did not work. When I tried to load the image on a newer system, i get a blue screen with "inaccessible boot device".

any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, even if it means buying software.

BTW, the old system is a P4 using a 32GB IDE drive. I want to load the image on a SATA drive.
