I used the clone function in True Image 9 to clone my laptops C: drive to my external USB drive. The clone procedure seemed to work. The USB drive can be accessed with Windows Explorer, and it looks exactly like the original C: drive, including files and partition structure. However, it will not boot. I have a brand new current Dell 9400, which allows booting from USB devices, and the laptop does try to boot from the USB drive(I can tell by the flashing lights on the USB drive), but I get the blue screen of death crash. Am I doing something wrong or is this a current limitation. I have reviewed prior threads and see that many people have had trouble booting from USB keys, but I had not read that anyone tried the clone disc function. Also, if this is a current limitation of True Image, is there anything in the works to add this ability to the software to be able to clone a laptop to an external USB drive so that the USB drive is bootable?
