What is best software to Image Drives -

Postby bdickert » Thu Apr 26, 2012 12:24 pm

Here is my dilemma -
2 exact hard drives - 2 partitions on each drive.
XP & Vista on one drive.
W7 & Data Partition on the other. W7 drive displays an error during Post - Seagate Tools says it won't pass the DST test. In W7 there is a warning initially to backup the data. I've used DiscWizard version 11.0 to image the bad drive to another 1tb drive - Seagate - kept partitions the same, etc. Here is my setup -
There is currently 3 OS(s) installed on your system.
The current boot timeout is: 30

When I boot up with the new drive, XP goes to a blank screen, Vista gives me an Hex error - W7 still boots. Please advise.

I used Tru Image from Acronis / Seagate version but it didn't keep the Bootup process the way I thought it would.
Can anyone provide what I did wrong?
Thanks

Thanks for the respnses - will they keep the boot up process intact? I think that is the issue - discwizard is to have a new version so I was going to try that this weekend.
