I'm trying to clone my hdd to make a live, bootable backup in case of sudden disk failure.
The actual cloning works fine, but when I try and boot off the cloned disk I get a BSOD soon after boot-up, saying that windows had shut down my pc to prevent damage and complaining about WDFLDR.SYS.
I'm running XP Pro SP3 on a Lenovo X60 laptop, my hdd is a Kingston ssd and the target disk is a newer Kingston ssd. I've also tried it on a normal hdd which has previously worked 100% as a bootable disk and I get the same problem. I've run Avira full disk scan and also chkdsk (automatic fix - but it didn't find any errors).
And, I'm using Casper to make the clone. I've also tried Acronis but with that I didn't even get a bootable disk.
Does anyone have any ideas what's going on?
I've used Acronis successfully before when upgrading from a magnetic disc to my current ssd so I was thinking it would go really smoothly but it's being a right royal pain in the *bleep*!!!
Hope someone can help.
Oh, and by the way I don't even get a minidump file (even when I hit F8 and choose safe mode or debugging mode). If anyone can tell me how to get one I'll happily re-run it.
Thanks in advance for any help!
