Hi, new to the forums. I was having some HDD issues and decided to get a new internal hard drive prior to any major hard drive failure. Once the replacement HDD arrived from Amazon, I used Macrium Reflect free edition to successfully created a rescue cd, made a Macrium mirror image of my C: on an external HD, and verified the image. Then I shut down the computer, unplugged the internal hard drive, plugged in the new blank hard drive internally, plugged in my external hard drive containing the mirror image via USB and put the rescue cd in the computer. Powered up and got the rescue wizard started. Followed a few steps but when it came time to select an image to restore, my external hard drive did not appear. I tried plugging the external into three different USB ports but no luck. The external doesn't even show up - it's not a matter of the image not being discovered.
Could there be something to do with my computer where it doesn't recognize USB drives while in rescue/recovery status?
