I am attempting to Clone a Windows XP Pro (SP2) system residing on an old 40GB Maxtor D540X-4D drive (with two partitions [C:OpSys/NTFS] and [D: Data/FAT32]) onto a new unpartitioned 80GB Western Digital EIDE Caviar SE WD800JB drive, using True Image 9.0 Home (Trial Version). The drives are connected as Master/Slave respectively on the same IDE ATA/133 cable. Each drive is jumpered as Cable Select. The system BIOS specifies Auto Detect and LBA for the new WD device. (I have made no other BIOS configuration changes for either drive.) Both the system BIOS and the Windows Device Manager recognize and report the correct drive geometry for the new WD drive. However, when I initiate an Automatic mode Clone Disk operation, using all of the standard defaults, it consistently fails. (It fails in Manual mode also.) Under Windows the operation seems to begin normally. Soon it issues the message: "Locking Partition C:". Soon thereafter it issues a "Warning: Operation Cancelled" message and initiates a reboot sequence. Under DOS(?), TI takes some time "Analysing Partitions [###...###] 100%", then Issues the message: "Error: Disk not found". After pressing 'any' key, a reboot into Windows is initiated. Back in WinXP, the two disks appear to be in the same state as when the whole process started. My questions are: 1) What is my precise problem?, 2) Is that problem in the Windows or the DOS(?) portion of the process?, 3) What can I do to correct the error and get a disk cloned?, and 4) Could there be significant differences in the way the Windows and DOS(?) portions of TI interpret the Cable Select disk configuration? Also, there appears to be an error in the True Image 9.0 Home User's Guide. On page 74, in paragraph 2, under Section "B.1.3 Installation modes, jumpers", it states "...BIOS will deem as <<master>> the disk that is connected to the IDE cable closer to the motherboard than the other one." If that is/was ever true, it is not true for my system now. Indeed my IDE ATA/133 cable documentation clearly states that the Blue End Connector is the <<Motherboard>> connection, the Grey Middle Connector is the <<Slave>> Drive connection, and the Black End Connector (farthest from the motherboard) is the <<Master>> Drive connection. If my Cable, my system BIOS, Windows, and I are all wrong about this, it may be the simple reason for my Disk Cloning failure. However, while my cable documentation and I could easily be wrong about this, I do not believe that the BIOS and Windows would be misreading the Master/Slave relationship between my two Cable Selected drives.
