    I have a 40Gb disk on a portable, with the following set-up:
    Dual boot, wih the choice of either Windows XP proff. or Linux.
    The disk is partitioned in the following way:
    C (FAT)
    And two Linux partitions
    It is build 619

    After mirroring the entire harddisk to a 60Gb disk, without! rezising, the new disk will not start. The only message i get is GRUB, but it will not give me the choise of chooing OS. I do not know much about Linux.

    Hello Jens,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis System Transferring Software.

    Please accept my apologies for the delay with the response.

    Please note that we recommend you to unplug one of the hard drives right after the disk cloning process has been finished, since keeping both original and cloned hard drives connected might cause different boot or drive letter assignment problems.

    Please also create Acronis Report keeping the new hard drive connected in the way described below:

    - Download and run Acronis Report Utility;
    - Select the "Create Bootable Floppy" option;
    - Insert a blank floppy disk in the A: drive and proceed with creation of the bootable floppy;
    - Boot the computer from this diskette and wait for report creation process to finish;
    - Collect the report file from the floppy.

    Please submit a request for technical support. Attach the collected report.txt file to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with the solution.

    Thank you.
    Kirill Omelchenko
