Running Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit on an Acer 1410 with a 640GB HDD partitioned into a 137GB C partition and a 411GB D partition. I created a rescue disk with a USB CDROM burner. I did a system image backup of only the C partition to a 1TB USB HDD with an image size of 82GB.
My goal was to update the HDD to an SSD.
Swapped out the HDD and installed a 160GB SSD. Booted from the CD ROM, plugged in the USB HDD with the image and selected the restore image. It says it will format the drive prior to doing the restore, but then comes back and says it has no drive it can restore to. I tried two different 160GB SSD and also a 250GB SSD and it gets the same error. The two 160GB drives had been previously used in other systems and the 250GB drive had never been formatted.
