Clone IBM hidden partion to another drive
Posted on 2005-05-05
I have an IBM Netvista that is starting to have Hard Disk issues. I want to install a new drive but recover Windows and IBM's utilities from the old drive first.
I want to clone the IBM hidden partion to another drive then boot that drive then recover Windows and the IBM utilities.
I made a small partion on the new drive. Then I ghosted the IBM hidden (service) partion to the small partition on the new drive. Unfortunately, when I boot up the computer with just the new drive connected it doesn't see an operationg system and it won't let me do an F11 to recover Windows from the small IBM service partion I created.
I'm sure I'm not doing something right.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
