Last night, I used the most updated free version EaseUs to clone from a 250GB Seagate HDD to a new OEM 1TB Seagate HDD.  I selected the turn off computer after finish option and left.  This morning, I removed the old HDD and try to boot from the new HDD.  It reached the windows that I can select which OS to boot (I created dual boot: windows 7 and window XP).  When I chose window 7, it reached the windows logo then restarted by itself.  I could boot to windows XP though.  I did try bootrec.exe to fix boot and brm but it didn't solve the problem.  Then I found the forum.  Attached is the scan file and chkdsk log I generated.  Please help. Thanks. 

 

Mod Edit:  Removedd FRST data, use of FRST is not allowed in this forum...FRST is a tool used in malware situations and yours does not appear to be such, IMO - Hamluis.

IMO, the simple fix would be to install EasyBCD in XP and edit the boot entries from it. It will detect both installs.

 

Can you see the Win 7 install partition from the XP Disk Management?

 

Did you install XP after Win 7 on your dual-boot setup when you established it?

There is no such problem before I used the EaseUS to clone my HDD.  I was able to run both Windows 7 and XP without any issue.  Now, both my source and cloned HDD can not be booted.  I guess the problem is the EaseUS. Any idea?

EaseUs makes a variety of products....which one did you use?

 

I've used EaseUS Partition Master and have no experience with any of their other products.

 

You might try the EaseUS support forum, if you are searching for an answer as to why the software did not function as you thought it should, http://forum.easeus.com/viewforum.php?f=20 .
