Recommended Posts

can someone help me a acronis image restore on what i need to do. I think this is what i need to do but am not sure.

step 1. recover my disks

step 2. use external HD of image made few days ago. path is C:\FULLWIN8.1IMAGE.TIB click next.

step 3 select recover whole disks and partitions and click next.

step 4 select items to recover option is disk2 with a check mark next to it with

check next to ntfs (windows 8.1) © and

check next to MBR and track 0

click next

step 5 select destination of disk 2 and select disk 2 which is my 500 GB HD and select next.

After selecting next a window pops up saying: the destination HDD you have chosen contains some partitions that contain useful data. HDD image recovery is possible only if the destination is empty. Click ok to confirm deletion of all the partitions on the destination HDD. Select ok or cancel.

which should i choose?

thx

@bruinator....Are you looking to restore all of the drive partitions or just your Win 8.1 OS partition? Plus are you doing this from the recovery media or the OS?

Mike, i assume i have to restore win 8.1 and mbr, yes? The image is on an external HD. I am restoring with acronis true image 2014.

Hi. Restoring the MBR is not always mandatory. If you can, upload some screenshots of the steps that you are following. I think that will help a lot. Like mike said: it seems like you are choosing to restore the entire HD and not only the Windows 8.1 partition.

i imaged my PC 02/26/14. since then i had to replace my keyboard on this pc. I just restored my pc using acronis true image from that date. when my PC boots up it asks me to choose your keyboard layout with options usa, arabian, arabic 101 or 102 or 103, armenian and a few more "a" options. I click on usa and then it says choose an options of

continue (exit and continue to win 8.1)
use a device (use a usb drive, network connection, or windows recovery cd)
troubleshoot (refresh or reset your pc, or use advanced tools)
turn off your pc


i select continue and it reboots. window pops up and says PC ran into a problem and needs to reboot and keeps on repeating these steps. what do u recommend i try next. Should i put the keyboard that has a problem back on it and restore it again or would u do something else. Please advise me.

thx

ok i selected to troubleshoot and it gave me an option to refresh my PC using install dvd without losing programs or files. It is all the way up to 95% completed and it has been sitting there for about 15 mins without moving. Is this normal? If not, what should i do next plz? How long should i wait?

thx

@bruinator....With all the hassle / hangs you are having with fresh / repair installs & Acronis recovery. Without continuing to go round in circles, something is definitely adrift.

From the symptoms you describe, you are possibly hitting a brick wall when it comes to writing data to your hard drive. Although its impossible to give 100% accurate diagnosis without being hands on, i have experienced this many times with PC's that have failing drives.

So rather than go for a hit & miss approach, I would suggest adopting logical process of elimination.

First I would check your destination drive for errors by plugging it into another box & running chkdsk or from the win 8.1 install media.

Once the Windows Setup window appears, follow these steps:

Click Next and select Repair your computer.

You will then see a blue screen and an option to choose.

Choose the option Troubleshoot and select Advanced options.

You may choose Command Prompt from Advanced boot option.

In the command prompt, type ‘chkdsk /r’ and press Enter.

Secondly check that your BIOS settings are the same as they were originally when all was well.

Come back with the outcome & best of luck mate..
