Cloning HDD with Manufacturer Recovery Partition with Ghost
Posted on 2008-06-20
I plan to clone a HDD (drive C) on an HP DC5700 Desktop which includes an HP Recovery Partition (drive D). The C drive has company softare already installed on top of Windows XP. The D drive, according to the Properties window resides on the same HDD as the C drive (same HDD model/serial #). I want to clone the HDD to an identical PC so that the recovery partition will be intact (just like the source drive) but now on the cloned drive (including D drive). Ghost 14 gives the option to clone each letter drive (C and D). I made a recovery point for drives C and D. Ghost 14 Recovery CD gives me the option to recover it to Target Drive 1 (C drive) and Target Drive 1.HP_Recovery (D drive). This is confusing to me and this is the point where I stopped so I can get a straight answer.
With these options from Ghost 14, how do I make an exact clone of the source drive which will include the HP Recovery (D drive)?
Thanks in advance for your help.
