I purchased an external hard drive (WD Essential, 500gb) that is used exclusively to create Macrium Reflect images for three different computers.
HP Laptop with Vista
Dell Desktop with Vista
Computer I built with Windows 7 as the OS
When I plugged in the external hard drive to each computer, it trys to install the external software. This worked no problem with Win 7. With the other two computers it says the external hard drive was NOT
installed properly. However, I can see the drive in windows explorer on all the computers. I had no problem creating Macrium Images for each computer with Macrium.
I can restore the images on the Win 7 and the Dell computers without any issues.
The HP Laptop is causing me a problem. When the external drive is connected, it will NOT
boot. It hangs up very early in the boot process with Macrium Rescue Disk in the CDrom. Without the external drive connected it boots from the rescue disk. WD techies were no help to solve the issue.
I did extensive reseach to solve this issue and I was told to boot into the bios and change something (I never could find out what to change).
If anyone has a clue I can use the help. Thank you.
