I upgraded my Vista machine to Windows 7 Pro. Before I did, I did a Vista PC Complete Backup thinking I would install VMWare Workstation and then restore my Vista OS just as it was before I upgraded. Everything worked well. The VM will boot from the Vista setup CD, the machine will find the backup file on the External USB, but right in the beginning of the restore I get a hard drive size error.
The Windows Complete PC Restore operation failed. Error details: The disk that is set as active in BIOS is too small to recover the original system disk. Replace the disk with a larger one and retry the restore operation. (0x80042407)
That is simple not true. It is the same disk. Any ideas would be great because I am not even sure I understand the error at this point.
