Windows 7 restore how to? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok I need to do a restore of Windows 7 x64 to a new hard disk. Because of the system partition I am having no luck at all getting it restored to the new hard drive. I create the system partition of 100mb then create another one for the c: drive. I restore to both and I can't get it to boot and when I do a repair it fails to fix it.

    Anyone have a step by step for this?

    Thank you,

    When you create your partitions, be sure to make the 100 MB partition active (right-click on the partition in Disk Management and choose "Mark partition as Active").
