Windows 7: Restore image after replacing HD

26 Aug 2010   #31

Oh dear, why do these dialogues frequently degenerate into slanging matches?

I won't bother responding to all the various misinterpretations and irrelevancies except to say that having to deal with vicious illnesses is something I am all too familiar with, having recently lost an aged parent who I was caring for, after six years, which cost me a career, a home and the majority of my life's savings. Add in heart attacks, major colon surgery etc... All of which had NOTHING to do with the "go easy". All I meant is don't assume I understand more than I do.

Phew. Extremely unpleasant experience that I really don't need.

Many thanks to those of you who offered useful advice, but I'll terminate my participation here permanently.

Been a frustrating day hasn't it?

Actually, Greg is one of the true gurus on this forum. He may have jumped in late, but I sure have learned much from him.

A simple "Thank you ... already tried" would have been sufficient. Sorry you felt offended ... but being offensive in return, when no offense was intended is counter productive. There are some 150 Gurus on this forum, all with different personalities, abilities, and experience. The only way we coexist is by not tolerating personal attacks. Disagree we sometimes do ... but without being disagreeable. Being polite will get you much further here.

As far as your hard drive visibility, as we are not sitting in front of your computer, so we are totally reliant on you and you observations and descriptions for our diagnosis. There are so many variables ... the motherboard and bios, the bios revision, the hard drive brand, whether it has been initialized or not. Some have reported that connecting a SATA drive to a different SATA port on the motherboard restores visibility. At this point we can only guess ...

Please post the results of your current situation and if more assistance is needed?

Cheers
Robert

Older Bloke,

Hope you get that system up and running.

I regret that we were unable to provide the necessary assistance.

Any misunderstandings or oversights were unintentional.

I'm sure you will end up enjoying your new system.
