I wan't to increase my drive size. therefore I tried to copy my 80GB drive into an 250GB drive with a complete backup. I have 3 OS's (2 WinXP and 1 Win98SE) and 1 data partition. It isnt' possible to start all OS's after mirroring the whole drive (TI 7.0 from CD-boot). Partitions as followed: 0: NTFS WinXP 25GB (Prim) Active 1: NTFS Data 17GB (log) 2: FAT32 Win98SE 2GB (Prim) 3: NTFS WinXP 33GB (Prim) (Backup-System) It is possible to start from partition 3 but partition 0 will hang before the welcome screen and partition 2 is searching for hal.dll I read in the german computer magazin c't that TI8.0 will not have the problems with the welcopme screen. Is that correct? I tried the fix with fdisk /mbr but this will not help me with my problem. No difference if I tried fdisk or not. Is there any change in TI 8.0 against TI 7.0 for that problem? Regards Gerd.
