royal.hello there,my first post,and hoping someone here can help me,will appreciatte it. i am running winxp,no problems with the os. i have a maxtor 40gb,and i decided to transfer the 40gb image to a new 80gb maxtor. i used trueimage 8,and used the clone icon to do it. i did the whole 40gb image to the 80gb,i let it do it automatically. it rebooted,then went through its thing okay. before i cloned with the image,i had the 40gb on pimary master,the 80gb on primary slave. when it had finished,i disconnected the 40gb,and left the 80gb to boot with. went to boot,but came up with the error.cannot load windows. so what i did was to put the 80gb on primary master(as i read in the posts to do)but still came up with the same error. even tried going into the bios(as in some posts)not altering anything,just getting out again,but no good. tried the boot cd,but no luck. when i put the 2 drives together again in winxp,as they were before,i went into the 80gb drive,which i transfered the 40gb to,the files were there which i had cloned,but will not boot on its own. i redid it several times,but no luck.noticed the 2 disks did hold the same amount of files. could anyone help out here please?
