I have two other installs of Windows which are on two different drives, two different partitions. They both work, I don't want either of those to be the Windows boot partition. I want the new drive which is giving me an error to be the Windows boot partition. When I boot into Windows PE 3.1 and I select the option to fix "windows boot errors" the new drive I want to boot too, is not listed, only a USB drive and one of the drives with a windows boot partition.

The data that I lost is gone, because I over-written it with a backup of another drive therefore the partitions were not shifted, they were just over written. I'm over that, so that is not a concern anymore. The concern is getting the new drive to boot into windows, then I can get things in order. I have contacted Macrium, and twenty four went by with no reply, I don't know why this is causing this much problems, something is not registering with the MBR and I have no way of fixing this. I have the option to ReDeploy but that doesn't work either, I tried that option hoping the "a device driver is inaccessible" error would be resolved if some drivers were feed into the drive that I want the windows partition to boot from, unfortunately it didn't work.

Do you have the 100MB System Partition and if so are you restoring that as well?

From my knowledge Macrium was suppose to create the 100 MB System Partition when I restored the image, and it didn't. Windows doesn't boot to the new HDD, it will boot to either of the other two HDD with the Windows Partition, but not the new HDD that I want to boot to Windows. I don't see a 100 MB boot partition in Disk Management or Macrium Pro, I don't think I have one, unless it's hidden where I'm unaware of ?

You should set up the partitions beforehand then reimage into the system reserved if you have one then the OS partition.
If you want to keep system reserved then I would create a partition of size 200MB and not 100MB.
You can also dispense with it:
1) On your new HDD create a single partition then reimage the OS partition image to it. The image cannot be larger than this partition.
2) Your computer will not boot. So using the Bootable Partition Wizard, mark this partition active.
3) Then using a Windows System Repair CD run the repair function 3 times, rebooting each time. This will install all the boot file info onto your single active partition.

Then your PC should boot.

I solved it, everything was disarranged. I lost some data, but not that much, now I can proceed forward and prevent this little mishap from happening again in the future

Issue with Macrium Reflect

Hi.

I have issue with free Macrium Reflect.

It tells me this:

Code:
(Gathering writer metadata...)
(Waiting for the asynchronous operation to finish...)
Error during the last asynchronous operation.
- Returned HRESULT = 0x80042318
- Error text: VSS_E_WRITER_INFRASTRUCTURE
- Please re-run VSHADOW.EXE with the /tracing option to get more details
- Backup failed. Mark all writers as not succesfully backed up... 
Completing the backup (BackupComplete) ... 

ERROR: COM call "m_pVssObject->BackupComplete(&pAsync)" failed.
- Returned HRESULT = 0x80042301
- Error text: VSS_E_BAD_STATE
And I cannot find the vshadow,exe file.

What to do?.

If that is a wrong place to ask, please tell me it, thanks!

I don't have vshadow.exe on my PC. Others probably know more.
But in the mean time the vssadmin command might help. 2 links one from Macrium, one general.

Navigate to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools\Services and scroll down to Volume Shadow Copy and make sure it is set to Automatic or Manual as in the snip below.

It is set to this show in the attachment.

I also ran a chkdsk /r and scf /scannow

Nothing helped :-(
