I looked at that link you put in your response 14.
When I bought the Maxtor I used either MaxBlast or Partition Magic to make a primary 100GB partition. The other part that was left was made into a logical partition.
If he sees things like what is below, he will blow out an "O" ring.
Please select the operating system to start:
XXCLONE: (Cloned Volumn) [d:0,p:1] \ WINDOWS
XXCLONE: (Target Volumn) [d:0,p:1] \ WINDOWS
If you dont mind I would greatly appreciate you taking a look at my response 15 to Cuffy. I have given detailed descriptions of problems I started having after using XXClone.
Am I doing something wrong?
I need to produce an exact bootable reproduction that I can exchange for the original, without even the slightest noticeable difference.
Do you have any idea how the NTLDR got compressed?
This is really not a good thing. Is there some way to fix the NTLDR so it is not compressed? Please note that this message only shows up when I connected the Maxtor as a slave.
As I said before when I connect the Maxtor as a master and leave the old drive disconncted I dont see anything on the screen. It just stays black. Normally I would see the drives and other things.
Do you think the BIOS is the problem?
Do you think it is not going to work with the Maxtor no matter how I duplicate the old master?
I have never had problems like this before. I have used Ghost for years with no problems at all. I have used Partition Magic for years with no problems. When I bought the Maxtor drive I did try to partition off the 100GB partition and use MaxBlast to make a bootable copy of the old master to the Maxtor drive. But it would not boot.
So far everything I have done is not making the Maxtor bootable.
What could be the reason?
This is giving me a major anxiety attack. I have already taken 3mg of Xanax to help calm me down.
I have to have the Maxtor be able to boot the computer before midnight CDT or I will be in the unemployement line tomorrow. My boss says, "Failure is not an option."
I am desparate guys. I need all the help I can get to solve the problems I have listed above.
Thanks for all the help!
You guys are at least think of things I never would have been able to think of by myself.
Please don't give up on me yet. I am a chemist but my boss found out I knew how to make a bootable copy of a hard drive. And in the past I have never had a problem making a bootable copy of hard drives, until now.
I hope to God you guys will come up with something that will work for me.
Thanks for any ideas!
