Dual boot XP & XP or boot from clone problem
Posted on 2007-04-01
I have a partition which has a clone of my XP Professional installation made with Acronis True Image Home. It sits on a partition on a 400GB IDE drive. The original is on an 80GB IDE drive
What I need to do is boot from the clone partition, but there is always a HAL.dll error. I copy over hal.dll and still the same problem.
What I would like to do is either dual boot or preferably just boot from the clone.
All the options given with the XP installation disc in the drive require the whole disc to be wiped, but I don't want to lose other data at this stage (about 180GB).
Any help, please?
