Laptop HDD imaging / Change
Posted on 2012-09-13
I have a laptop (HP Pavilion dv6), in which the harddisk is complaining with some bad sectors. So, I decided to transport the image to another similar hard disk and replace it in the laptop so that I don't need to worry about rebuilding it from the scratch.
Is there an easy way or a software that can help me do that.
I plugged both new and old hdd's to a different computer using sata-to-usb connectors and transfered all the files using xcopy command. when I plugged in the new hdd into my laptop, it says, "No boot disk.." error. apparently, the xcopy trick I used did not work..
Any help in getting the HDD replacement would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
