Win 7 64 bit restore? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just tried a restore to a larger hard drive on my Win-7 computer and it fails to start up. Is there something I need to do different to restore a 64 bit system? Restore work fine for my Vista 32 bit computers.

    I saw something about the drivers stored as part of the backup am I supposed to use those when booting to the restore CD?

    Thanks

  • I redid the Backup and then redid the restore CD and all is well. Not sure which fixed it but it is ok now.

  • "... fails to start up."

    What exactly do you mean by that? It doesn't boot from the Restore CD? The restore succeeds, but the computer doesn't boot afterward?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • The restore went along fine but the Win-7 computer would not start up. I just put the original hard drive back in to get up and running.
