    Hello,

    I need to replace my C: drive but I have 2 problems.

    The first deals with my C: drive which was originally set up incorrectly as
    a dynamic disk. It should be a basic disk. My thoughts are I can correct this
    issue within the ASR.SIF file as restore is done. However, I can find no
    helpful info of MS technet to aid in modifing this file.

    The second issue occured as I tried to do and Automated System Repair,
    Windoz setup complained the new 40GB dirve did not have enought free space.
    Futher research concluded the old C partition was 37.27GB and the new drive
    could only be partitioned to 37.24GB.

    I suspect the 2 issues are related, and futher suspect I need to modify the
    following sections of the ASR.sif file:
    [PARTITIONS.MBR]
    [ASRFMT.FIXEDVOLUMES]
    [ASRLDM.VOLUMESTATE]

    The actual config is:
    C: 40GB "boot/system" drive
    D: 40GB "data" drive
    J: 120GB "data" drive
    M: 120GB "data" drive

    None are mirrored or extended.

    Anyone able to offer suggestions?

    TIA
