Rescue and Recovery - Cannot boot to Windows after trying to restore a partition that no longer exists
Symptom If you have multiple partitions and backup using Rapid Restore Ultra 4.0 and then delete one of these partitions, a complete restore would restore the first partition correctly then restore the deleted partition over the first partition. This causes Windows to no longer boot. An error message stating that NTLDR is missing may be displayed.
Affected configuration IBM systems supported by IBM Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore, running Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP, configured with IBM Rapid Restore Ultra
Solution Use a disk partitioning program to create the same partitions as they existed during the base backup, then restart the restore process. After doing this, if you want to restore the data from the deleted partition, you can use the Rescue Files & Folders.
