Okay, I've been having a week's load of problems. It is time to go to the "pros", aka you guys.
Two weeks ago, my old computer failed on me. I knew it wasn't a HD problem, so I bought a new computer and was hoping to get everything set up. Save...I didn't eralize that the new computer had only SATA cables and not even the possibility of hooking up a ribbon cable (which would have made my life frickin' easier).
ANyway, so I buy a hard drive case so I can hook up the HD via USB and try a ton of solutions to clone it, but each cause one error or another. One did the cloning fine, but then couldn't find the partition. Another did the cloning fine, but then gave me errors on the image restoration. Finally, I tried Acronis Trial (which is fully functioning) and everything seemed to be okay...
Until I tried to boot Windows XP from the partition with it on it.
Windows XP won't start up but the data is there on the partition. All 200+ gigs of it.
So...what can I do to make my Windows XP work? This is getting tiresome.
The partition I am now (that is working perfectly) is running Windows Vista (which I really don't much care for).
