Ghost seems to work, but new drive stops booting!
Posted on 2004-11-14
I have Ghost as part of my Norton Systemworks 2004 package. I had two HD's installed a 20GB (drive F:) which features XP Pro SP2, all my apps and documents and which is the boot disk. I also have a 40Gb drive (Drive C:) which I have been using as a backup drive for both the documents on C: and also for my PDA and photo's. Drive F: starting running out of space and so I attempted to clone to a new partition, ie clone all of F: to what would be tyhe new boot drive C: which is twice as big.
Anyway, all went fine until I took out F: to check if the new drive C: would boot as the clone. gets upo to the Windows screen just prior to the log in screen, but then just stops. The mouse still works but nothing else. The clone drive C: is set as the Master.
I am sure I missed something obvious, but I don't have the knowledge to know exactly what ...
Also, when we do get it working will all the programmes still work fine, even though the new boot disk is C: and not, as previously, F:? Or, have I got how it works all wrong!!
Thanks a lot
