Do you have any partitions before the OS partition on the old HD that could cause a problem with partition numbers?


I just actually looked and there is a 16MB "HP_HIPA" Partition on the OLD HD. Sure wish I would have slowed down and noticed this. Is there a different approach when using two partitions? I will refer to the link you sent about multiople partitions.

That explains why your old boot.ini says partition(2). As you only cloned one partition, the new boot.ini will have to be edited to partition(1) before the OS will boot.

I'm confused. Where do you see this?

Does BartPE boot to a "desktop". Can you open A43 File Management?

I hooked up the OLD HD to check to see if it booted, which it did, then went into disk mgmt and saw it there. Then I unhooked OLD HD, and have been trying to get the NEW HD to boot with BartPE like before and I am about to throw the thing through the window.

BartPE "did" boot to it's desktop, on the NEW HD. Then I went to explorer. That is when I saw the "corrupt" error. I am trying to get to boot BART PE. to look for 43

Did you have only one HD in the computer when you used BartPE?

Why not delete the partition from the new HD and start again. Clone the 16 MB partition, then the WinXP partition. Does the new HD now boot?

This is the process I am taking now, deleting HP partition then ghosting and see where I get. I will update.

I'm not sure that will get you anywhere. boot.ini will still show partition(2) and the OS won't boot on either HD.

Kind of what I was sitting here pondering. When I ran the ghost it does not show partition (1) only the OS partition. So I need to go into BartPE and figure out how to find the boot.ini.

You mentioned A43. Not sure what you mean by this.

A43 is in the Program list. It's the app you use to find boot.ini. Then double click boot.ini. A43 looks a lot like Windows Explorer.

Here is a typical partition(1) boot.ini

Quote:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

The small 160MB partition, (1), does not show up as a partition able to clone in the copy option.

Try this as a test. Download CopyWipe... (a free app)

Quote:
Download CopyWipe for DOS  from.... (Don't get the Windows version)

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/copywipe.php

Double click makedisk.exe to make the boot CD. There are good instructions in the pdf.

In one of the computers with an old small HD, connect the new HD as a slave. Boot to WinXP and from Disk Management delete the partition(s) on the new HD.

Shutdown and boot to the CopyWipe CD and run through the copy menu. Use the Scale Size option. When it's finished copying, shutdown, remove the old HD from the computer and install the new HD as the master. Boot to the new HD.

Success?

No success-

After CopyWipe completed, read "1 event not resized"

Unhooked OLD HD and rebooted. "Disk read error"
