    My hard drive crashed but I backed it up using macrium reflect free edition.

    When I use the macrium cd rescue cd, it fails at 60% claiming corrupt file. I downloaded the latest version. I have given up on macrium however I can use macrium to mount the image as a drive in XP.

    I have a version of Windows XP on the new drive and a separate partition big enough to restore my old drive.

    I wish to restore the macrium image to the partition, then get rid of the other xp on that drive and make the restored partition the bootable system.

    What is the best way to do this? Can I just use xcopy? Will it know to make it bootable or do I need to use software?
