There is a new version of Macrium out a week or so ago. Not sure if you are using it.

And I don't know if it will help you see that pci e raid card.

At any rate, what's the point of making an image of a partition that includes programs you say are causing your problems, per post 5??

I'd at least uninstall those shaky programs if they are causing you grief.

Was makeing an image of a clean install with all updates and SP1. Storeing that image then installing the rest of my programs.
But somehow Acronis must be updating that image, as when i restore the clean install image there are programs on it.
Probly me not setting the image options correctly though.

I can't imagine how Acronis or any imaging program would "update" an image.

If program X is on your successfully restored image of partition C, it was on partition C at the moment the image file was made.

More likely, you are not successfully restoring the "clean install" image. The unwanted programs are as found on the drive before the restoration attempt and you didn't really restore anything.

Either that or you made an image of something other than a "clean install"--and then restored it.

As far as I am aware all imaging software will image whatever is on the HDD at the time of imaging. This includes OS and all installed software. Things like the pagefile are excluded.
A strategy is to make multiple images. One before you install apps if you like. I generally have an image before and after an app install.
If working with Macrium I would stick to the pe restore disk option.

Just an update,
I moved windows off the revoPci-e drive and onto a sata6gb Ssd drive amd Acronis is workin as it should now, image restore works fime, there is no MBR error on boot up.

So it looks like Acronis did not like the Pci-e raid 0 drive.
