System restore fails: red "X" on same size drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm testing Vail on a VMWare setup. I've been able to connect one virtual XP SP3 client to a Vail virtual machine and do a successful system backup of the XP client. I've created a second XP virtual machine with the same size disks and other parameters to simulate a system restore. The second VM boots and finds the Vail server; after using the disk manager to format the virtual disks, however, I always get a big red X when trying to restore the system (C) volume. Since this was running in a VM I was able to take a screenshot:  http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4061/4619946077_13d752cb0b_o.png

    The new C drive is big enough for the old C drive, yet I still get the "X".  What might be causing this?

  • Could you please submit a bug on Connect? Also, can you try restoring to a drive that's just slightly larger?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
