Hello all, I am using the tutorial from BC: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/backup-your-computer-with-driveimage-xml/
I had previously formatted the drive to 'clone to' prior to using the UBCD. So I ended up skipping the CompuApps SwissKnife part. So I chose the restore from location and image, and chose the destination partition; upon beginning to restore the image to the destination partition DriveImage XML gave me a warning stating that the clone image is 255 heads and the destination partition/drive (can't remember for sure) is 16, and would I like to force the cloned to the destination, or leave as 16. I chose the force the cloned to the destination.. What if any negative impact will that have, and should I just go back and use the SwissKnife tool.

Thanks,
Scott

Forget about this thread. I had to go back and use the Compu Swissknife program to set up new hdd, and then restored image and reset disk ID..This topic can be closed this now.
Thanks anyway,
Scott
