I have the same error, However in my case I cloned a failing 120G drive on to a 500G HGST(new ,out of the wrappers) -used Acronis clone tool. The Clone action completed successfully - no reported errors. However when I log into the user account, the Windows mail error pops up with the descriptions/information as posted by Byte007 above. I can add the following (hopefully usefull)information.
1) my 1st Target drive uses an Advanced Format (AF) Technology,
As I suspected the new target drive of being faulty, I then Cloned on to a 250G drive (non AF) - successfully, No issues when I booted. Then -
2) I cloned again from the original 120G on to a 2nd hand 500G drive ( non AF ), This also functioned without Error. So I wondered is it the 'brand' or the 'AF'. I bought a different Brand of drive -(its an AF), and just to-day it arrived, tried the Cloneing, -BAD NEWS, the new drive exhibits the same issue as the earlier AF type drive. So common element here is the Advanced Format technology.?? I hope this helps. Naturally If I get a solution (other than not Using AF technology) I will post it.
