I was trying a different approach to upgrading my laptop hdd. I put the new hdd in a USB Enclosure, and tried to clone to it from the old hdd. After the reboot, when the indication came up that TI was 66% through "checking partitions", I consistently got the following message: "ERROR: Partition configuration has changed. Reboot..." Then TI considers itself done. I tried automatic, manual, as is, and proportioned to see if that mattered. It didn't. The USB drive is being read. TI didn't have any problem cloning my old hdd to my external drive yesterday, so I'd like to know what that error message means. Thanks for any help.
