Ghost a Dual Boot drive to a larger hard drive?
Posted on 2005-05-02
I am trying to use Ghost 9.0 to copy a dual boot hard drive from a small 14 gig hard drive to a larger 40 gig hard drive.
The target drive is in a second hard drive adapter and shows up as D:\ and E:\ in My Computer.
First the source drive has:
Windows 98 SE on the C:drive which is formatted in FAT 32
Windows XpPro on the D:drive which is formatted in NTFS
The target drive was partitioned as follows using Partition Majic
Partition 1 or D:\is a primary partition set to be active and formatted to a 6 gig size and formatted FAT 32
Partition 2 or E:\is a logical drive formated as NTFS and set as a primary partition but not Active.
Ghost 9.0 was loaded on the Xp drive and the project was conducted using the Xp operating system using the Copy drive Wizzard.
I have been through the process many times and many ways and have still not been able to get a working dual boot 40 gig drive.
Good news is that I have not hurt my original drive, it still works fine.
Bad news is I have not been able to get a bootable drive out of all my efforts.
so I am here looking for a little help from the Experts.
