Happy Thanksgiving I am at my in laws for the holiday, and they told me they were having computer problems. 6 months ago I told them they would need a new hard drive as theirs was grossly insufficient (10GB). Well they eventually went to Best Buy and bought a 150GB HD. The kid they got to install it, completely was over his head. It looks like he installed the new HD as a slave and then tried to you several free hard drive cloning software’s so the new hard drive would become the primary bootable hd. When I went to turn the computer on, I was met with choose an operating screen that gave me the choices: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows=”XXCLONE: (Cloned volume) [d:0,p:1] \WINDOWS” /fastdetect /NOExecute=Optin & multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows & Last safe mode The only one that actually works is the “XXCLONE”, the others either restarts the computer or the screen goes black. If i go to startup and recovery uncheck time to display list of operating system, with "xxclone" as default the system will boot straight to Windows XP. So my question is with the actual Boot.ini file. I cant even begin to try to clone their hard drive with ghost, because the BIOS is jacked up and i want to fix it so i can clone correctly. Can anyone help me fix this?
