Copying a WIN2K and WIN98 Dual-boot from one HDD to another
Posted on 2003-02-27
I have on one standard 10Gb IDE HDD, a perfectly functioning Dual Booting Windows 98 and Windows 2000 installation.
I need to copy the entire drive to my new hard drive which is 80Gb. The newer drive is much much faster and will improve system performance :)
I've tried copying each partition idividually using Powerquest DriveImage to the new HDD which goes fine apparently. Then I use the Windows 2000 recovery console on the CD-ROM to write the Master Boot Record to the new hard disk using the 'FIXMBR' command.
The problem is that when I reboot with the new HDD and Windows 2000 starts up, when I log in to the PC, there is an error which says that there is no Pagefile set on the drive! Therefore I can't use Windows 2000.
What is the problem and a solution please?
