Make sure it's not compressed. If you can still get into the system (safe mode or whatever) goto the File\PowerQuest\DriveImage 2002\Programs look for VFD files. The files will be in blue. If so, choose all of the blue files, right click, properties, advanced, and remove "compress contents to save space" or something like that and click okay and wait for files to decompress then remake another image to remove the superflous files of the first image automatically.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
