Problem imaging Windows 7

  1. Hi,
    I have 2 hard disks:
    1st i'll call it H1 and 2nd i'll call it H2
    H1 is partitioned into C - E - F
    H2 is partitioned into D - G - H - I - J

    my OS is installed on D ( Windows 7 ), i want to get rid of H2 coz it has problems, so i wanna image OS from H2 and restore it to H1, when i'm trying to use the integrated imaging in Windows 7 i'm having these problems, first when i'm asked to choose where to save the image, only C - F - G - I - J are available, let's say i chose C, the software auto includes partitions D - E - H in backup even though only D has OS, E and H has only data ( and as u notice they r on different hard disks ).
    Norton Ghost is not working, coz every time i try to make image it says i need to run it in some kind of environment.

    Thanx.....

    it might be you have windows dependacies on partitions D/E/H such as installed software or My Documents file links etc.

    Norton Ghost used to run from DOS from a bootable CD, but that was years ago when it was really good.

    Norton ghost calls for dot-net and that is just one of it's niggles. Acronis 10 is the preferred professional imaging software. Home version is inexpensive and can be downloaded for trial before purchase.
