I have a win7 home edition pc, working just perfectly. I tried to use Acronis and Ghost to boot up so I can clone the single hard drive. Unfortunately, I was unable to boot using Acronis nor Ghost. After the pc tried to boot up from the DVD drive it prompted the error message:
Cannot boot on the drive (partition)...
At the same time, I already cloned several computers using the exactly same method. How could this happen? It seems hard to believe since booting up from a CD doesn't interact with the local hard drive. How could this happen?
