PC wont boot after restoring to different hardware

edited September 2017 in AOMEI Products Support


I tried to restore an image from one PC to another .

The new PC is an old laptop an "Advent 8215P"

I followed the instructions carefully and made sure the restore to dissimilar hardware box was selected.

When it was finished I rebooted but after the BIOS was loaded I just get "Windows is copying files" it then reboots and keeps doing this over and over again.

The windows version I am trying to move to the new PC  is windows 7 ultimate

I am using Backupper professional.

Has anyone any idea whats wrong please?

  • Have you also tried without the dissimilar hardware checkbox?

    Did you Clean the disk wth Diskpart before the restore to erase all leftovers from the previous OS?

    Is the version you're trying to move a 64bit OS? The reason I ask is the processor for the Advent 8215P is the Intel Core Duo T2350 which is a 32 bit processor. It will never run a 64 bit program. If your copy of win7 ultimate is 32 bit, then there's more work to do here. (LIke getting 32 bit drivers for an old PC. That may be a problem.)

  • Yes you are right I forgot it was a 32 bit machine! image

    thanks for reminding me.
