Question about Seagate Momentus 5400.3 Hard Drive
I have a momentus ultra ATA 160 GB hard drive that I just cloned using Acronis True Image Home Edition. The clone worked fine, but I cannot boot from the new drive. The OS I am running is Vista. I cannot seem to get the new HDD to boot. When I try to boot to it, I get a message that says Primary Hard Disk O not found. I have already tried cloning a few times using different software, but I get the same result. How can I boot from this drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It can only clone the windows files and folders there is other files located on a hidden system on the hard drive, when you install and new hard drive these file are fixed to the drive. to make a bootable drive you need to install these files from a windows disc then add clone files over the top so these files don't get deleted.

What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.
