I bought a new computer that came with a 2 TB SATA HDD. I want to use this as an external backup and bought a SANDISK Extreme to be my main boot disk. I created a Repair Disk and a Windows 7 System Image from the original hard drive. Then I switched drives and booted the computer with the repair disk.
I should be able to restore my system image to the SANDISK Extreme. It ‘sees’ the drive. I’ve been able to go into DISKPART and create partitions and volumes, format and etc. However, when I try to restore the system image, I’m told there is no available drive that can be used for this.
Thus, I have to think there is something in the way I’ve formatted or something but cannot figure it out.
What am I missing?
