Hard Drive Clone Problems
Hi, I can't boot my cloned hard drive. Each drive is set up on a seperate IDE cable coupled with a CD drive. I tried to switch the IDE cables but it just freezes when I try to reboot. So how do I get the cloned drive to boot as my C: drive? I used Powerquest Drive image to clone the drive and I am pretty sure it was successful. I'm also running win2000pro.
You can't have two bootable drives on one controller. You need one common boot drive and a dual-boot setup.
Or you can try to put your cloned drive as primary master,the other drive as a slave either on primary or secondary channel.
You can put two bootable drive on the same ribbon as long as the jumpers are set right.If both are bootable,then the master drive is the boot drive.
I think if you have one bootable drive on secondary master and other on primary slave,then the secondary master will become the boot drive---if I remember right,so I could be wrong on this one.
That's right. Trying to dual-boot with two separate system drives is a bad idea.

For W2k, you have to put the cloned drive in the same exact place as your original drive, probably primary master.
The boot.ini file points to the boot drive
If you clone a drive, it thinks it is still in the original position. it's not smart enough to change positions dynamically.
No,win2k will treat your clone as a new device.All you have to do is reboot----kind of a pain.
