That sure beats what I do when I take a portable hdd to work (& leave it there) w/ my important stuff on it.
Well the backup of the main rig went smooth BUT the test restore fail every time
The darn restore app couldn't find the server, even tho the drivers were installed.
I tried also w/o the internet plugged in & ran a direct data wire connecting both PCs... both attempts failed.
So I tweaked the BIOS (disabled Smart Monitoring) & used a SATA CD/DVD drive... still no joy.
To check if the WHS updates & PP2 were causing the problem I tried a restore from the test rig & that worked fine... something funky here w/ the main rig I suspect.
I suspect its something w/ the ASUS MB as when I installed Windows 7 a few weeks ago, it took 10 minutes longer than on a weaker (CPU & RAM) PC. I'm was thinking a security setting is causing this but don't see anything else in the bios i can disable that isn't already.
I'll just keep on plugging, any suggestions are appreciated.
I have searched the MS WHS public software forum for tips.
