Windows 7 clone

May 23, 2011 at 11:41:29
Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3
I have never cloned an operating system before. And everything has seemed to go smooth. I have the new drive set as C: and the computer recognizes it and boots just fine, except that, it boots almost as a new boot everytime. It configures desktop every boot, and I have to adjust some windows properties. I still have all data, just some settings are changed. I am wondering if there is a quick fix to this, as maybe I need to adjust a .dll or something. Thanks in advance.
Did not adjust current O/S. I am running Windows 7 Home premium SP1. Previously a gateway DX4300, Now have new drives, case, and PSU. But original mobo/cpu/ram, old 1tb drive as storage, and original burner. I also have a new gpu

Then clone failed.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I've already formatted the original drive. I only have the current drive. I do not currently have a win7 disc, since this one was installed with the comp. I might have a disc in storage but is 12 hours away, so no access to it. So do I need to get access to a win 7 disc, and call for a new s/n, or is it possible there is a restore in one of the backup partitions?

you can try rebooting and tapping on the right Fkey, most systems have a hidden partition accessed by a F key or combination, depends on the make and model of the original machine, search for factory restore on the manufacturers website.
