WHS and windows 7

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok, i think i have used google more this week than my entire life combined... i cannot for the life of me get my desktop at work to restore from WHS. i am seriously about to give up and just copy files one at a time back to my computer from the back.

the problem is the computer will not load up correctly and its something to do with the boot manager but i have tried everything i cant and it still doesnt work. i made the 100mb partition, NO drive letter, made it active and everything like i was told too but the stupid computer still ends up getting c:\\ for the 100mb and d:\\ for everything else. any ideas what i am doing wrong here? if this doesnt work i dont understand the point in keeping the server as i might as well just backup stuff to a usb drive since i will need to copy files over one at a time.

1) Burn an image of the Restore.iso under the Software folder.
2) Run this disk on the computer you are trying to restore.
3) Load any necessary 32-bit network or storage drivers.
4) Connect to WHS.
5) Select PC and partition.
6) Restore.


If you only need to recover files....
1) Open the WHS Console
2) Go the Back Up tab
3) Select the PC.
4) Select a restore date
5) View the restore

WHS will open a new folder that is the restore.

well i am trying to do the restore and i have done it several times with windows xp and everything works but with windows 7 it wants to force the 100mb system reserve partition to the C:\\ name and my windows drive to d:\\ even if i manually tell it not to assign a drive letter to the reserver and c:\\ to windows which causes boot errors
