Hi, I have an ASR setup based on the floppy and the .bkf on an external sata drive configured in my motherboard bios to appear as a plain old IDE drive.
The plain old IDE SATA drive was not present on the machine that I did the ASR backup on when I made the ASR backup.
No matter what I have tried, I cannot get the ASR setup to recognize the SATA IDE drive that holds my .bkf . It's like it's just not there. Not mounted.
Now, with some quick switching of the sata connection during various time-windows, I can sometimes get the external drive to mount, point the ntbackup at that, and then the restore continues. But it is difficult to replicate... And sort of a corny way to recovery.
So, my question is how can I modify the ASR diskette files to tell the system to look out for and mount the external drive. Or better yet, how about an explanation on how come what I am doing sometimes works and a better time in the process so that it works every time.
