System image backup failed (on the same hard drive). Error 0x80042407
I have 2x160gb intel SSD disks running as RAID0.
Recently my motherboard had failed and I replaced it with new one (different model).
Couldnt access OS because apparently some RAID data is kept on the motherboard and that was gone, so I decided to use a backup.
Booted from windows 7 installation disk and selected backup,
I click on 'repair', get to the 'select a system image backup'.
Select 'use the latest available system image (recommended). Click 'next'
I get the message 'all disk to be restored will be formatted and replaced with the layout and data in the system image'. Click Yes.
but then got an error saying:
"The system image restore failed.
Error details: The disk that is set as active in BIOS is too small to recover the original system disk. Replace the disk with a larger one and retry the restore operation. (0x80042407)"
Disk is completely empty with only 1 partition (deleted all partitions and reformatted and then created one).
Before motherboard problem i had several partitions, but I imagine that restore would recreate them.
Why do i get 'disk to small error' when im restoring on the same disk?
RAID configuration problem? Could stripe size be an issue here?
My OS: Windows 7 64 Professional
