Windows 7: System Restore

System Restore

A little background on my system's configuration. My system was/is configured is a two disk RAID0 with a system partition and two other partition for Windows and programs. I'm wanting to migrate the partitions/data to a single disk system. I created a system image using both the Windows backup software and Novabackup. The problem I'm having is restoring either of those images to a single disk. Is it possible to restore an image from a RAID configuration to a single disk? If so, what am I missing? No matter which image I try to restore from, I either get a fail from Windows or can't be done in so many words from Novabackup. I just want the RAID image on a single disk. Thanks for the help.

Hi,

Unfortunately, the system image contains drivers for the RAID0 setup, which is no longer present under the new single HDD setup. Generally speaking, you have to use some form of "re-deployment" function to restore the image to a dissimilar hardware setup.

What controller are you using in the BIOS with the new single HDD setup? IDE or AHCI?

Please refer to this, using a Macrium image:
restore from raid 0 image to single drive

Regards,
Golden

I have AHCI in BIOS. Novabackup allows for dissimilar hardware recover or migration. Not sure why it wouldn't allow me to do it.
