    Samsung 80 SATA to Samsung 120 Sata...

    Using manual settings with the program, all seems to go well with the cloning but when i connect the new clone drive i get the ERROR LOADING operatin sytem...

    You can use the Windows CD and boot to it. Select any raid drivers to install using F6 and then go to the recovery console.

    Once at the console run the command: bootcfg /list

    It should list your Window Installation.

    Then you can run: bootcfg /add

    Select: 1 for the Windows Install.

    Then you can name the Windows Install like... Windows XP w/SP2 < as an example.

    Then you can pass any parameters, like /fastdetect

    Finish it and then reboot... you should see 2 operating systems to boot from and just select the operating system name you gave above... ex: 'Windows XP w/SP2

    From my experience this has seemed to fix the problem on 'like' systems.

    Hope this works, good luck.
