I have a Compaq Laptop N800c 2.2 GHz mobile Intel Pentium with 1 gig of Ram, running Windows Xp Pro on an 80 Gig Toshiba MK8032GAX HD. The Windows is fresh install, fully updated as of yesterday. No other software. So no drivers, are an issue. I am trying to make a copy of the hard drive. So I would have a clean slate in little time, after my next crash. The Target is a 80 Gig Toshiba MK8032GAX HD. I already have two 80 Gig Toshiba MK8032GAX HD paper weights. Well they work as slaves, to bad my laptop can't run them. Using True image Home Build 4,942. I can manage to "Clone" the drive, to another HD and it works fine. But when I "Image" and restore. I just get a blinking cursor. I have tried the Windows fixmbr. Dosen't work. The check archive, says the archive is good. I have read many posts on here about just getting a blinking cursor, but have found no real answer to that problem. Has anyone come up with one? I am afraid that if I use the clone, one of these days I will accidently clone the wrong direction. Image is much safer, and dosen't tie up an entire hard drive. Thanks for taking the time to read. Hope I didn't forget any necessary info.
