    ris and disk boot failure on restore

    hi all i just ran my first RIS riprep which went ok with no error and then tried to restore back to the same machine everything looked fine in terms of the machine being formatted etc but when it restarted i get disk boot failure? where do i begin in terms of fault finding where it went wrong is there a log file? any one else had this happen?

    just went to a normal xp install on this drive and got an error that it wasn't formatted correctly for xp and that it was a RAW drive ? not sure what happened when i tried to copy my Ris Rep image across but that can't be right.

    that sorted it mate although i have now been able to do subsequent installs on the same machine without doing a base image install first maybe it was just a quirk?

    no no just the first time you do the machine, next time you want to image it you can just use your image alone
