I wanted to post this to save alot of people time. I was recieving a BAD_POOL_HEADER blue screen after making an image by cloning using an external USB hard drive. I then put the cloned USB hard drive into my laptop and started it up. Everything worked fine for about 5-10 minutes and then the blue screen of death. After some research found out that the problem was that the acronis image has some problems. I have heard that these problems only occur when using an external USB drive to clone or changing the type of hard drive you are using. I have not confirned that though. Anyway, the blue screen would occur after 5-10 minutes of starting because I had carbonite running. Carbonite attempts to use the volume shadow copy service. This is what was causing the blue screen of death. The problem was fixed by going into the device manger and performing the following steps: 1. Go to device manager 2. Click "View" and select "show hidden devices" 3. Scroll down to "storage volumes" 4. Click on the "+" to expand 5. click on each one listed and right click and uninstall. You might get a message box that pops up and asks if you want to reboot. Say no, and do the previous step to all items listed. 6. Reboot 7. when windows comes back up it will reinstall the hardware you uninstalled and ask you to reboot. 8. Now the storage volumes are installed correctly. My guess is that they changed to reflect the new drive configuration. No more blue screen! Hope this helps and save people time. Also I hope acronis fixes or documents this somewhere in future versions.
