Ghost Imaging- trying to "inject" SATA drivers onto SATA drive that has been cloned from an IDE drive to make SATA bootable
Posted on 2007-11-29
I am trying to image a PC with Ghost Enterprise 8.0 that has an IDE hard drive and push the image down to a PC with a SATA drive in it.
I was able to image the IDE computer fine and have the image on my network. I was able to push that image down to the SATA computer fine, from the network, but when I boot up on the SATA computer the "Load last good configuration", "Load normally", "safe mode", etc. screen appears. No matter what I choose, I get a blue screen. If I try to run a Windows Repair from the OS CD, I get a blue screen when the setup gets to the "..Loading Windows..." part. I even tried to the "Press F6 to load 3rd party RAID/Controller drivers" and pointed setup to the right drivers but it still doesn't work.
I was able to get the SATA drive out of the computer and into another one that already had 3 IDE drives in it. So now I can boot to one of the IDE drives and see the SATA one under My Computer. My question is: How can I load the correct SATA drivers onto the SATA drive so that when I try to boot to that drive I don't get a blue screen? I have done research and am 99.9% sure that the reason why I'm getting blue screen is because there's no SATA drivers on the SATA drive (why would it, it has cloned contents of an IDE drive...). I am going to try to run the actual setup.exe for the SATA drivers but I'm not sure if that would all of a sudden make it bootable (don't know where Windows looks to to grab the correct hard disk drivers upon bootup.).
