NEC NEAX IVS2 PBX with NEAXMAIL AD-8 - hard drive clone, issues

Hi Liam, 

As stated in my OP, I was using Windows 10 and USB adapters.  I used
Rufus, Active Disk Image, and Macrium Reflect programs to copy it an
image file and then back to the CF.   They are supposed to create exact
images of the drives but I think they do not.  Of course it could be
something with my CF to USB adapter. 

As far as errors,  as stated in my OP, "Since the voicemail card is
running headless, I can't see the error messages."  The only way I know
of a successful boot, is one LED turns green and then I can call in to
the VoiceMail card.  

I am going to try a Linux machine and DD next.
