I've not installed a new internal hard drive before and hoped it would be a bit easier. I've taken the old internal SATA out, reinstalled new Maxtor SATA 160GB. Turn on machine which comes up to black screen w/ option F2 or F12 (Bios I believe). I go into Bios and see the drive is listed. How do I restore what was on previous SATA I just took out which I backed up using Acronis True Image 10? I put this on my external hard drive and also on CD ROM. I changed the boot order 1. CD ROM and 2. SATA drive....nothing seems to work. I do have another CD with Windows XP which I can try, but my first choice to to completely restore the image that was on machine which I did with Acronis. I hope this is making sense to someone out there that can assist. This is someone elses computer who did not provide a boot disc or restore disc. Thanks ....
