Windows 7: SSD / Backup - recovery

Well, you are right that it should work. But it could cause you to be back in the same place you were before. Try this. Create a partition on another hard drive the same size as your SSD. Restore the image to that partition. Then reboot and boot to that partition. That should tell you if it works. Acronis didn't do anything to bios, it can't. Just to be safe, disconnect the SSD when you do the restore. That probably isn't necessary but is safer.

Does your Acronis image include the boot files? If you have no 100MB partition, during the restore select do not replace MBR and select make the C partition active.

I don't understand.
You said " Create a partition on another hard drive the same size as your SSD"
So, i have my SSD as C partition and D and E as HDD1 and HDD2
You mean, i should make another backup image of C ?
And second : how should i disconnect the SSD when i do the restore ?
I don't have the hotswap icon, anymore.

I'll have a look now.
Be right back
I never check MBR when i recover my backup image.
Maybe there is some problems because i don't have 100 MB system reserved ?
Could be ?

Here's the deal. The image you had before will restore it exactly like it was before which caused you problems. What you want is an image of it while it working correctly. And to be safe, I was only suggesting to restore it someplace other than your C drive to keep it from messing that drive up in case it didn't restore correctly. An image will only restore it the exact way it was when you took the image.

I didn't know that's possible.
So, i have my E partition ( HDD )
I will make E in 2 partitions. Lets' call it partition G -46.5 GB , the size of SSD.
After that, i do the image restore of C ( SSD ) on the G.
I'll try now.

OK. And when you reboot use the 1 time boot key (usuallyF11 or F12) and select the disk you just restored to. It should boot into windows that you just restored if it went correctly.

If you have nothing on the partitions you already have, you can use one of them.

Didn't work.
I pressed F12 ( Boot menu ) and first i choiced HDD1 , and then HDD 2
Reboot went okay, but not in G. I am in C ( SSD )
Anyway, i'll give it a try to recover on my SSD

I don't understand. were you able to boot into the recovery you just made? If not, the same thing will probably happen on C if you restore there.
