    Hello,

    Used Hard Drive Manager 15 last night to clone laptop drive to higher capacity drive. Clone operation appears to have succeeded and laptop starts up with a screen to either 'start windows normally' or ' run recover mode.'

    When I run the recovery mode I get my laptops recovery software which wants to reformat my original drive so I don't want to loose my original hard drive data.

    When I try the start windows normally option the laptop just sits there with no action.

    How did cloning remove the startup for my existing system and how do I get it back?

    Cloning does not change anything on the original disk.
    How do you perform operations: from HDM installed in the OS or a booted from the recovery media? How do you connect the large target drive, via USB?

    Thanks for your reply fireworker! It turns out that the reboot after cloning just needed a few minutes to reload the boot partition so everything came back fine and cloned drive is also working perfectly.
