I cloned a 4GB XP drive that had less than 100MB of free space to a 40GB and then resized it using Partition Magic. There were some problems getting it to copy.
My first step was to try to backup it to up to CD using Norton Ghost, but the lack of free space corrupted the temp DOS boot partition and it took me 2 hours to remove it to boot back into XP.
After the copy process using PM in DOS failed a couple of times it finally succeeded, but after changing the 40GB slave to the Master it wouldn't boot at all.
When it is the Slave, the data is present and appears to be an exact clone.
What steps can I try to get the 40GB drive to boot? Is there a way to read and see if the MDR or boot.ini is configured correctly. Are there remnants of Ghost that may have been cloned and still need to be deleted?
