I created an image file on my external USB drive. I then tried to restore the image to a new drive. Everything appeared to work, and all the files were present on the new drive, but when I booted the new drive it kept going inot startup repair. I tried all sorts of options (fixmbr, fixboot etc) to try and get it to boot but without success. I then created an image file on an internal SATA drive. The image restored and work perfectly.
Is anyone able to shed any light on why the image would not restore from my external USB drive?
