Default restore img file - 04-29-2009, 05:19 PM

Im new this is my 1st post....

I have a mini 9...32 gb ssd....I purchased the tweakpc suite 2009 and I created a clone image of my hard drive on an external usb hard my hard drive crashed and the only way to restore it is to reintall windows to accesss the tweakpc program.....I have done this 5 times now and every time it stops during the reimage and a blue windows screen appears "A PROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED & WINDOWS HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER"....

any ideas?

If I understand you correctly, you're installing Windows onto the SSD. Then you're booting off the SSD and trying to restore a drive image to the SSD. That'll never work. You can't restore an image onto a partition in use. And since you're booting Windows off the SSD, it's most definitely in use.

You need to have a separate bootable disc, which contains software to restore the image. The drive imaging software should include such a disc, or the ability to make one.
