A few years ago I upgraded my old computer from Windows XP to Windows 7. This created two disk partitions on the hard drive, giving me two different OS I could boot up from.

I needed more room so got a new hard drive and cloned the old one to it. For some reason it will let me boot up in the old XP version, but will not let me have my Windows 7 version, and says it cannot find device :/

I have it set to a primary drive, and have even tried wiping it and cloning it all again but I still can't get it to work.

Can anyone please help me?

Hi :welcome: to BleepingComputer


- Which tool you use to clone the disk?


- Can you post the Brand and model of the HDD and the same info about the computer or motherboard?
