My lap top was dying so I cloned the hard drive (Dell Latitude 6410, W7 Professional, Intel Core i5 CPU, 64bit, Toshiba HD) with Acronic to a Seagate ST500M002 HD. I then put the new HD, in a desk top with a new Biostar A58MD with an AMD processor. When I try to open I get messages that HD can’t be found, System can’t find the file specied (0X80070002_error code), Driver not recognized, etc.
What am I doing wrong. How do I get the correct drivers in to the Seagate HD so I can open?

Can you boot the desktop up, and then try to view it's contents by plugging in an external enclosure like this one?

Hi Tomwilde,


In my opinion Clone isn't the correct option to use in your case!


What you should do is to create a full disk image using Acronis to an external drive. The external disk must be formated and can contain other files because the image backup it's only some big files that are created on the disk, nothing gets deleted.


Next remove the bad hdd from the laptop and install the new one, boot from the Acronis CD/USB and restore the backup image from the external drive to the new HDD.


Restart the computer and Windows should boot from the new HDD.

The basic flaw that I see...is you have tried to move an OEM laptop drive...to a system with different motherboard and CPU.


The Dell Windows license cannot apply to such a new motherboard/system...the drivers will also be different for the Dell system as opposed to the new motherboard..
