Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium sp1, AMD Anthlon x2 3.0 64 bit
I am using a HP Pavilion with Windows 7 Home Premium sp1 x64. It came with a 640 GB drive. I have got a new drive 1 TB. I did not want to go thru the whole install process because it takes days and I have a bunch of programs. So I decided to clone the drive. I cloned the whole drive includeing the HP recovery. The problem is when I tap F8 on startup I choose Repair your computer. I get the following error.

Windows Boot Manager

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the
cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.

2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."

3. Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer
manufacturer for assistance.

Status: oxc000000e

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is
inaccessible.

I have see this problem with acronis before I just don't know if there is a soloution. I can get into the recovery console the HP recovery. I have tried startup repair from the options. Also I figured I could try system restore. There was no restore points. I have not wiped the HP drive. I could put the drive back in boot it up and create the system restore. Then clone again. I just wanted to post this again maybe someone has a soloution before I do that.

OK Just an update. I did what I said I was going to do. I booted up the 640 GB made a restore point called "before clone" After the clone I tried F8 repair again and got the same error. I rebooted the system tapped F11 to get HP recovery. From there I am able to get to system restore. I tried but got a message no restore points. Also just tried system restore in Windows and it saids no restore points. Acronis must have an issue coping files from the 100 MB EISA partition that Windows 7 makes.

I'm probably missing the point here.

You cloned the 640G drive onto the 1TB. I assume you then swapped the drives over.
If it was a full and complete clone, I have a job to understand why you needed to go for repair at all. Shouldn't it have just worked as before?

Sorry if I am having a really dense moment - it can happen LOL.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The partition must have been made active. After cloning, swap out the drive. It should boot up.

Yes I cloned the 640 to the 1 TB. It was a full clone with acronis true image. I did not "need" to do the repair. I have just cloned before on anther computer and knew I had the problem before. So I just tried to go into the repair to see what would happen. This seems to be a issue with acronis if it did it on 2 diffrent computers.

"The partition must have been made active. After cloning, swap out the drive. It should boot up."

There is 3 partitions. One is the EISA Win7 makes one is OS the other is HP_RECOVERY. I think the issue could be with the 100 MB EISA because if I am not mistaking that's where the info is held for startup repair?

Just to let you know. This also happens when you use the backup. Like If I backed up the 640 GB and restored to the 1 TB it would do the same.

Does anyone know a fix for this? I really need to start using the 1 TB drive. But I may have an issue and need startup repair or any of the F8 options. Before I start using the drive I want to correct the issue.

Thanks

Sometimes when I run Acronis from the hard disk I run into problems. So I use the Acronis boot disk to do the backup. That seems to work. Just an idea.

I have tried both ways. This is Acronis 2011 I upgraded from 2009. Maybe if I download that update I saw it may fix the problem. But I tried the 2009 version and it did the same so it looks like they would have fixed it.

I, too, must be dense. Don't know why you have to tap F8 on startup. I don't ever recall having to do that. As I recall it, the system just started up on the new drive.

I do not "have" to tap F8. I just want the issue fixed in case I ever need to get into start up repair. And yes I know there is repair disk. I want the F8 option fixed. Using the repair disk is not always best option. I may not have it handy at the time (I tend to misplace things) and may need to do a repair that is why I want the F8 after cloning fixed. And the system does boot fine after the clone. I just know I have the error only when trying to tap F8 then choosing repair option. Also on Vista and 7 OEM machines F8 and then repair is a backdoor getting into recovery console. I can tap F11 and get to HP recovery and it has options their for start up repair and even system restore. But I still want the issue fixed. I believe cloning maybe all the files in the 100 MB EISA partition does not copy? I just don't know. Maybe someone else has a clue. And I did try using an older version of true image. I tried booting to the CD but get an error the secure zone not found. I do not want to create the secure zone because of the HP recovery. Please do not suggest things like delete the HP recovery because I am not going to do that.

Thanks

OK Here is what I have done. Used the image backup in Windows to backup my old drive (640GB). I restored it to the 1 TB (NEW) I booted up with the Windows 7 System Repair disk I created. EVERYTHING restored to the new 1 TB drive. I can now boot up using F8 if I need to. It just seems Acronis has an issue cloneing files in the repair partition that is 100 MB. I know some people do not like the repair partition and think it is usless. I am one who likes it and I want to keep it. I also don't like the idea of deleteing the HP_RECOVERY. Those partitions are there for a reason. There is a small problem. When I backed up the 640 GB I opened the My Computer icon. I saw HP_RECOVERY was almost full. The line is red and was not red before. After I booted up the 1 TB the HP_RECOVERY is still red and almost full. No huge deal just I wonder why all of a sudden it got full? I NEVER store anything there and I NEVER alter what's in it.
Thanks for any suggestions.

I just realized I have 335.34 of unformatted space on the 1 TB drive. So the imageing over with the image backup in windows only restores the size of the original drive. Meaning if you upgrade your drive you will have unformatted space. I could expand the C drive to that space but the recovery partition is there and I rather not bother doing that. So this brings me back to cloning with true image. Can someone please help? No one has replied and I really need some help.

Thanks
