I know I'm far from the first to have problems with this, and I apologize in advance if I missed an older thread that would solve my troubles. I just got TI11 (downloaded yesterday), cloned a 60GB Hitachi 2.5" drive from my Acer laptop to an USB external 120B WD 2.5" drive (both ATA) with hopes of using the 120GB in the laptop. When I swap the drives, I hear the drive spinning (real quiet, but it's there) but I get a black screen with a flashing cursor in he top left, a lot of beeping if I try to type anything. I made the recovery CD (unless there's another option and I chose the wrong one), but it makes no difference when I reboot. Replacing the original drive gives me no problems, as I'm typing this post from the laptop. Any help on this would be much appreciated. Please keep in mind, I'm more than capable of following your directions, but I probably don't know much correct terminology. So, I guess you can call me Mr. Layman. (but not afraid to do his own computer upgrades.) Thanks.
