I have a IBM T60 ThinkPad with a 40GB SATA Hardrive running Windows XP Pro SP3 on C:
I have bought a new 150GB WD SATA internal drive and tested it and it works with a fresh copy of Windows installed, so I know my new HD is not faulty
I have used both Ghost 15.0 and XXclone to clone the C: Drive to the new 150GB drive conected via USB. I have copied over the MBR records also but the new drive, once replaced inside the laptop the new drive will not boot. All I have is a flashing '_' at the top left of the screen. I have changed the boot order of the BIOS and it is definitely the new drive that is causing the lack of boot.
I have been told that this has to do with the new cloned drive has to be seen as the C: drive. I understand why this might be the case but how on earth do I do this.
Norton is sold with the claim that you can upgrade your old hard drive with a bigger one, EXACTLY what i want to do. What I wasn't told is that, actually its not very straight forward.
Please could somebody help me with this booting issue?!
