i have tried to make an image of my c drive on a new hard drive using partition magic and drive image. no joy - the windows installation stops before the welcome screen. (i have a medion computer with a recovery disk and retten already on the original disk). all i want to do is to create a new drive with the c drive copied onto it.

any suggestions gratefully received

hi there

I assume you installed DI then restarted the computer and made the CD-ROM first boot and then went into Drive Image that way?

thanks for that - however i dont have a cd - the software is just installed on my hard drive. i thought drive image 7 could be run from within windows

not if you have made a complete image

It needs to run outside windows to re-image back to the HDD

did you image it to another Hard drive?

DI can be run from Windows to create and restore images.

With the exception of restoring an image to the boot partition.

No CD? You didn't download he trial did you?

a friend of a friend put the software on for me so not sure of its origins. i have tried creating an image of the hard drive to another hard drive which is housed in an external usb hdd casing.
i thought this woud enable the boot drive (C) to be copied across straight forward and then put the hdd back into my computer
by its never worked despite several attempts
the software seems to be fully functioning

I personally use Norton Ghost 2003.

'a friend of a friend put the software on for me ' - that's a no-no. You must get your own CD/ licence otherwise its illegal.

as xania has said and you need the disc to re-image back

If it is the trail version then I think it gives you less than full functionality.
