Hello. I have downloaded the trial version of true image 8 because I heard great things about it! I am trying to juggle around some hard drives I have so I actually want to "downgrade" my 80gb to two 40gb's I have (all maxtor PATA 133 drives). My current 80gb drive is partitioned into 12gb and the rest (~68gb). I cleared all the stuff from the large partition onto a network drive and copied the remaining onto one of the 40gb's then removed that drive and put it somewhere safe and installed the other that I want to copy the system drive onto. So I now have an 80gb drive with a 12gb "C:" partition and an (empty) 60gb "D:" partition and I want to use the "disk clone" to copy this onto the 40gb drive. When I run the clone tool and select "keep partition sizes" it tells me I will end up with a 12gb and a 28gb which is fine. It then says it will be three steps and I need to reboot. So I let it. I copies over the first drive in a reasonable time and then the second one quickly (as you'd hope coz it's empty!) and then lots of space scrolls up the screen and it says it is complete. So I remove the 80gb and put the 40gb where the 80gb was - however, when I turn on the computer it says "missing operating system". I have tried this many times using different settings in the "clone disk" feature. I have even tried removing the large partition so there is only one partition to copy and have tried it filling the drive and the original size, same problem every time. The 40gb drive has the same jumper settings (i.e. master) as the 80gb and was being used in my server until recently so should not be faulty. I have tried booting to a dos prompt (from a win98 cd) and the files all appear to have copied. What am I doing wrong?! When the software is performing the copy it does not attempt to do anything with the floppy drive does it? because I don't have one installed!!
