    Default backup/restore blues

    Backed up my Maxtor 160gb Sata HD with Macrium Reflex & as a test I tried to restore the "C" 37gb partition first on a Maxtor PATA 80gb HD then on WD 80gb SATA HD.

    All went fine but neither restore HD will boot.

    Goes up to the MS XP logo, the dashes go back & forth then the sequence repeats.

    Tried Macrium Reflect Restore CD, UBDC, BartPE, Paragon recover CD & in desperation Maxplus 4 CD hoping their restore MBR, Boot.ini etc repairs may help but with no avail.

    Is this backup/restore caper a gimmick or am I doing something wrong.
    Thank you
