Restore to a different computer using acronis workstation

by getgcs - 5/27/09 6:09 PM

i have posted this on acronis forums also....

my questions are numbered (1)-(3)

(1) how do i restore to a different computer that has a different hard drive interface?

my computer backup has been made on my laptop with a IDE hard drive

I have a desktop that has a SATA hard drive and when i restore the TIB file to it get a blue screen stop error
"STOP: 0x0000007b (0xf78a6528, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

i have tried it the other way around too...making a backup with my SATA drive (desktop)(same xp pro manually installed) and then trying to restore it to the laptop (IDE) (this gives me the same blue screen) (safe mode loads the xp boot files and then i get the same blue screen.

(2)how do i get it to have it when i am whiping out the laptops drive with the backup?

(3 IMPORTANT QUESTION) what is an alternative program or way to allow me to restore my backup to any hard drive and to any interface.

PS> (now thinking its an interface problem i have installed a seperate IDE hard drive into my Desktop and tried to restore the laptops IDE backup file to it....no luck).... now the laptops hard drive is IDE and my secondary desktop hard drive is IDE i really dont know why this is not working. (ALSO THE BACKUP FILE IS FINE AND IT HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND RESTORED TO THE LAPTOP TWICE....AND YES IT HAS BEEN RESTORED RECENTLY (TODAY).
