I wanted to create a clone disk as desaster restore for my Netbook
- I made a Windows Image Backup
- Then created a Restore CD with an external CD Drive.
- As I dont like to restore from CD, I copied the content of the Restore-CD to a bootable USB-Stick.
Create Clone with Error
- I connected my external USB-Disk containing the previous created Windows Image Backup,
- Then I installed a new disk into my eee Netbook
- Now I pluged my USB-Stick in, acting as Restore-CD .
- Booting from USB-stick was a matter of configuring boot priorities in System Setup.
- After selecting my keyboard layout the restore GUI opened
- Selecting a Systemimage Restore showed the just created Systemimage. Fine
- I selected the new installad disk and started the restore
- But now an Error claimed that the Partition can not be restored and ended the whole action.
Don’t connect your external USB disk at startup
- Add your new interal disk and plug in your USB-Stick acting as Recovery CD
- Setup your BIOS to boot from your USB-Stick
- Boot your Netbook from Recovery USB-Stick
- Select your keyboard layout and proceed until you have to select to restore an image
- NOW connect your external USB-Disk containing the Windows Image Backup
- Select the Image to restore
- And restore it…..
- Boot from you clone disk. Done
It looks like the restore program somehow mixes up the two disks if they are connected from beginning on.
