I just went through my pile of disks and I found my original HP DC5750 backup image and I had made it a bootable one so I can toss it in and boot up the backup/restore program (Arconis) and everything works. But still HP has a stupid way they want the drivers installed. Maybe I missed something.
reply to robman50 It's fairly easy to determine what hardware a generically-named device is. Open it up in Device Manager, go to the Details tab, and change the dropdown list to "Hardware Ids". You should see something like PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_000B (using my Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium as an example). You can search at various sites (here's the one I use) using the vendor and device listings.
