I am trying to replace my current hardrive with a bigger and higher specification one. I spent must of yesterday producing clone drives in various different ways. Acronis produces a clone that on the face of it looks exactly like a clone: the size is right and the files on it look identical. However, when I replace the old drive with the cloned drive, I get a message like this. File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe Status: 0xc000000e Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt. The system directs me reboot and to carry out a repair using the Vista drive, but the Vista disk will not boot in this situation. Why is it that the cloned drive does not appear as a clone to Vista? I'm using the latested version of Acronis at today's date.
