I made a clone of my old drive to put into a new emachines box. It starts to boot and then returned me to the emachines menu with a brief option to press F10 or F2. Waiting just sent it back to the windows boot menu. When windows tries to boot it goes back to the emachines menu. Over and over. While trying to get on to the internet to get some help, I discovered that the USB ports and Ethernet ports don't work. It's going to the service dept for a fix. Meanwhile, when I get it back, I'll be faced with the same dilemma. It occurs to me that the emachine might have some proprietory something that is needed for a drive to boot. That doesn't make sense to me, and it would pretty much put the kibosh on cloning drives when upgrading computers, but nothing else makes sense. Did they do this? If so is there a good workaround?? All help is appreciated!!!!!
