I am trying to clone my laptop internal hdd to a larger hdd (currently accessible via an external usb case). When I run the disk clone and Acronis needs to reboot, my laptop wouldn't reboot.... it seems to get hung during the boot sequence. When I power down the laptop (by hitting the power button), and unplug the external hdd, it boots right up. If I plug in the external hdd again, XP finds and enables the usb device, but I still can't run the clone because my laptop won't reboot if that external hard drive is plugged in. I just can't seem to get my machine to reboot with it plugged in. Due to the size and speed of the hdd (60 gig - 7200rpm) I have the new hdd plugged into a powered usb hub.... my laptop usb ports don't have enough juice to support the new hdd (at least not as an external component). Any suggestions?
