    My wife's HDD is about to go (Making clicking noise) and I bought a new 40GB HDD - Western Digital. I've made a backup image of her system using Acronis True Image that I plan on restoring to the new HDD. Do I need to do anything in regards to initializing the new HDD, since I am going to do an imag restore instead of a new WinXP install?
    Thanks,
    Jerold

    You don't need to prepare in any way, just use Acronis to restore the image and it will do all the rest.
