|When I select "copy my hard drive" the wizard takes me into a screen saying select source. This then lists the "drives", in my case, from the old HDD it says that c,d and j are the drives, (these are actually the seperate partitions I set up on the old HDD I talked about earlier). So it would appear I cannot copy/clone the whole drive, as each time I would be missing partitions d and j and as I mentioned above, I think that the d partition holds the boot details. The old HDD came in two partitions c and d, but I addd a third to seperate out the various uses of the drive.|
With this in mind, I tried to set up partitions in new HDD, as d, c and j and disk copied each of the partitions from the old HDD in the same order, using Norton Ghost, to basically replicate the old drive, but this did not work either!! I think that this might be due to the bootmanager pointing to drive c, as the OS and not the new drive P, as the new OS, but cannot get into bootmanager to advise where the new OS is.
Is there any freeware out there that I could use to copy the whole of the drive in one hit, so that I have a perfect image of the whole drive rather than a perfect copy of the c partition only?
