I have a Dell Optiplex GX620 with a failed HDD. Purchased a new HDD that is larger than original. When I started the system image recovery everything is normal and it says restoring then suddenly display shuts off. Both the new drive and external USB drive are still running but no display. Sat for 4 hrs and no response. Original image was only 121GB. Should it take over 4 hrs as writing system image to USB only took a little over an hour and should display shut off?

Which specific software is being used for the image recovery? (and  where is the recovery image located?)

Was using Windows but tried Macrium last night and it worked. Now have other issues with updates but did manage to recover the needed data.

There is a specific order of updates for Win7, including one or two bad updates that need removed or skipped. Good luck!

Maybe a software conflict.

"...Original image was only 121GB..."

I must have missed it, was the source hard-drive material cloned onto, or, full-image restored onto, the target hard-drive?  Reason for asking:  Using Macrium Reflect [and earlier Acronis True Image] to restore full images of partitions [made from a source hard-drive] onto a target hard-drive resulted in a couple of "unallocated spaces" on the target HD, which I was able to fix using Acronis Disk Director.  Is this what you're running into?  Along with the sudden shutoffs?
