AOMEI Backup and Restore in Multiboot EasyBCD environment
Have Multiboot Win 7: Win 7-2 and XP[SP3] in that order. PC self built. All OS reside on single SSD. EasyBCD is my Boot Manager. Cloned this configuration with AOMEI. Only the first Win 7 was Bootable. Corrected in EasyBCD the Win 7-2 and it is now bootable. The XP launches to "MS Logo" and freezes at the "Name log on screen ". Have used Acronis for Backup/Restore in past but it does not currently support multiple OS. I want to use AOMEI to create a Backup System drive (either SSD or HDD) as a "spare". When I Backup the first partition: I utilize "System Backup". with High Compression: and Sector by Sector and I verify. When done it Boots.
I want to Backup ONLY.the Win 7 -2 [the 2nd System partition]. If I use "Back up System Drive" it by Default INCLUDES the first Win 7 partition.....so they BOTH get backed up. I 'd like EACH OS separately backed up. There is no Option to "Reject" Win7's inclusion in the backup. So I have to choose "Partition Backup". I back this up as an .ADI file . (also use SAME SETTINGS with sector by sector) but the MBR and Boot Manager are really controlled by Easy BCD so I'm not sure if this is the correct way to Backup and Restore this partition to "insert" into the Multiboot environment......or I might just want to utilize the Backup as a SINGLE OS on a different HDD/SSD. In this situation I would want the Win 7-2 partition to be backedup as a System Backup but WITHOUT the Win 7. How can I resolve this problem.
And is there any information about the "System Backup" and how it "handles" the MBR and Boot Manager when backing up. How that might differ from how the Partition Backup handles the MBR and Boot Manager particularly if it might not be present or is "linked " to the first Sector ot the Win7-2 partition.
I understand that most of this site's questions aren't in multiboot and don't usually cover 3rd party software. I'm in contact with EasyBCD and have that somewaht squared away....but I'm really not comfortable with AOMEI backup and restore functionality.
Here any information would be greatly appreaciated. I have corresponded with tech support previously and there are
considerable language problems. I have tried to make this as concise and strait forward as possible. And I will be patient for answers.
Sorry Tried to EDIT the line spacing but to no avail
