Harddrive permissions problem after clone
Posted on 2005-04-11
We have several hundred Dell computers. Some batches of the GX270's we purchased came with maxtor harddrives which are all going bad. I am in the process of trying to clone them to different branded harddrives such as Western Digital. The problem I run into is after the new drive is installed in the pc and boots up, windows tries to install a driver for the harddrive. It always ends with an access denied error. The system continues to run fine after you click ok, but every time it is rebooted, windows attempts to install the harddrive and receives an access denied message.
