I have an Acronis tib file that is an image of a workstation with Windows NT 4.0 that is currently in use and I am trying to restore it to a spare computer that is identical in every way(supposedly) except that the original computer has a Quantum Viking II SCSI hard drive and the spare has a Quantum Atlas IV SCSI hard drive. They both use the Adaptec 2940U/UW SCSI controller.
The problem is that when I restore the image to the spare, I get the 0x0000007B stop code with the message, "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE". If I then restore the spare computer's original image, which is Windows 2000, the computer boots up fine. I have tried different versions of the aic78xx.sys, disk.sys, hal.dll, and SCSiPORt.sys files but have had no success. Does anyone know why this is happening to me? As painful as it is, I need to use NT 4.0 for my application. Thanks for any help!

After you do the restore, before booting the image, boot off an NT 4 CD, start a command prompt, and do a fixboot then fixmbr command.
