PC Restore from WHS RRS feed

  • Question


    I have tried to restore my HP Digital Entertaiment PC to another hard drive from a WHS backup.  Restore runs fine but when I swap the drive that was in an external SATA case to the PC, the PC will not boot up.  Get error message that the disk is not bootable.  Operating Sstem is XP Media Center 2005.  Tried this twice and can not get the drive to initially boot in either case.


    Any suggestions are welcome....

  • The new disk is apparently not marked bootable. You can fix this by booting the recovery console / environment from your original install CD or DVD and then (for windows XP) run FIXBOOT.
