Windows7 is broken after ghosting from other HD
Posted on 2011-03-16
I have this graphical workstation a HP XW8400.
I need to replace the original SAS HD with a larger SSD.
The computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Danish language.
I use Symantec Ghost 15.0 latest build.
I attach the SSD with a USB-to-SATA cable and clone the original disk to the new one.
After this I disconnect the SAS HD and connect the new SSD to SATA0.
When powered up Windows is starting fine and I can login to the domain BUT!!!
my desktop has disappered and I only see a complete blue desktop with bar and icons missing.
The ONLY thing I can see is a warning in the lower right corner telling me that this is not a genuine Windows which it is??
I can start the Task Manager and from here launch EXPLORER.EXE which brings and emty desktop back telling me that this is only a temp profile.
I can't start ANYTHING!
If I try to go to START and COMPUTER it just says something like "THE USER INTERFACE IS NOT SUPPORTED".
The only solid error I see is that it seems like my C-drive now is a G-drive.
I cant start Computer Management so I don't know how to fix this.
If I start Task Manager and try to run the COMPMGMT.MSC it tels me that the Snap inn is missing
