Re: completepc restore to new hardware
Hi David,

Vista won't recognize a USB drive until the OS is fully loaded, it has (to
my knowledge) no provisions for loading from or to one during any point of
setup other than grabbing a driver for a RAID configuration or SATA drive.
Which, non coincidentally, may be the issue with the SATA drive. It may
require a manufacturer's driver to access it fully.

You mentioned you created these as network shares, were they attached
locally and mounted as such? or were they attached elsewhere on the network
and mapped?
