I did an image backup of a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine (yes, I know it is old) and tried to restore it to a different machine with the restore USB stick/CD. However only the C partition was available to be restored. Despite a SYSVOL partition being stored on the server.
Whether or not I used the “make windows bootable on new hardware” option before restarting, windows only boots into recovery mode and cannot find an OS to repair.
Upon checking the partition table only the C partition was written onto the disk.
So is there a way to move all partitions over to the new disk?
Additional information: the original disk has an additional partition (for data) which has not been backed up. All in all the original disk is larger than the new one (2 TB vs 1 TB), but the SYSVOL and C partitions are smaller than the new disk. So this shouldn’t be an issue AFAIK.
