WHS 2011 Backup To The Rescue


Recommended Posts

I am dual booting between Windows 7 and Windows 8. I have a RAID striped volume so I decided to install Intel's latest WIN8 compatible driver. Bad move. Launchpad stopped working and nothing I did would fix it. Finally I had to rely on a bare metal restore of my WIN8 partition.


On my first attempt WHS was unable to create the partition and suggested I use Disk Management to create the partition. Thanks to WHS 2011 you can click on Disk Management within Restore. I used Acronis TI 2012 to backup my partition just in case. Then I formatted the partition. Same problem. Hmm! I then deleted the partition, created a new partition and formatted the partition. This time my restore worked perfectly.


When my system rebooted it booted into Windows 7 and there was no boot manager. I used Visualbcd to automatically repair the BCD Store. Now my system dual boots correctly. Checked SSD Partition alignment and it was correct. Thank You WHS 2011!
