We are trying to clone a client's machine that has Quickbooks and Quickbooks Point of Sale 2013. We are cloning from a old 80GB Seagate SATA drive to a NEW Crucial 250GB SSD using Acronis True image. The clone "successfully" finishes and we can boot the system with the SSD. The issue arises when we open MS Office or Quickbooks and it asks for a re-activation. Normally not a problem but it alarms the customer who would like to do this to another machine that has had the HDD replaced many times (long story). In addition the original 100GB drive also ask for activation and can not find the POS files after the clone is done. This also happens on the SSD, but we believe that it is linked to what is causing the activation issue. Again, this aggravates the customer as we assured that the original drive will be untouched ( and it was ) but can not find any reason for this. we have resolved the POS issue.
My question is: Is there any absolute way that this can be done that not cause re-activation, or makes sure that the drive is a 100% true copy of the original?
