Windows 7 System Image Restore Error 0x80042407
I have x1 120GB SSD and x2 500GB HDD in my computer. The SSD is my boot drive. I created a system image of my Windows 7 Ultimate and put it on an external 750GB HDD. I also made a restore CD. I went into my motherboard's (MSI MPower z77) RAID controller to configure a RAID1 of my x2 500GB HDD. I then booted up with my restore CD and formatted my boot SSD. Then I started the System Image Recovery tool and picked my image off of my external 750GB HDD. It starts to do its thing and says "preparing disks...". Then an error comes up, "The active disk set in the BIOS is too small (0x80042407)".
I set my boot SSD to be first in the boot order in the BIOS. The SSD is formatted.
Basically, I can't restore a system image on my SSD. I have no clue how to fix the problem.
On a side note, I was able to boot up my Windows 7 CD and install it for now.
