<LI jQuery1298147808107="58">Acronis True Image Home 2010 doesn't backup Windows 7, I guess. So what would be a good backup for Windows 7 so I can restore it to another Hard Drive?

I have used Acronis True Image Home 2010 to backup Windows 7.
What problems are you having?

Same here, I use 2010 on windows 7 machines and it works fine. Have you updated it with the latest changes?
If you have a really early version of 2010 then there could be changes that have come out that you might need.

Backup

I'm using Acronis True Image Home 2010. I Image my C drive into my 2nd Hard drive 2nd partition. I restored my image to my 2nd Hard Drive 1st partition. Rebooted and my Windows 7 1st Hard Drive came up and then I shut down, removed my 1st Hard Drive and rebooted and got "Bootmgr is mission". I put back my 1st Hard Drive and booted into Windows 7 and went to Disk Management and where the image was restore has no drive letter and I can't give it one. So I figure I did something wrong.

I posted a while back about problems I was having with Acronis & Windows 7 and found that my solution was updating the snapman.dll.

This may solve your problem even if you are not using a RAMDisk: http://www.sevenforums.com/software/...m-ramdisk.html

That is happening because the boot record is on the 1st drive.
Just leave the first drive disconnected and boot to your Windows 7 DVD with the second drive connected and do a startup repair.
