I wonder this of course since I may have to restore it to the smaller 120GB disk and all 3 partitions would not fit. As to your question about createing a backup with only the the 40G not checked, yes, it should work but it needs testing. Use manual and when prompted, select "AS IS". however when I try to boot from the new drive I recieve the message "error loading operating system" and the systm just halts. Source

doing it manually....one step at the time, slowly to make sure you are not missing any option? Did you clone using TI in Windows or from the Acronis TI boot CD? Don't you apply some special thing to copy MBR?. But letme just wrap it up.
Though PS is on the same physical drive so that may not be so good. I think my problem lies in the cloning not including MBR/boot.ini though). Using the site is easy and fun. Great time to really clean the registry (W/Clean Install).

Error Loading Operating System After Acronis Clone Once booted to the cd, pick install (not repair) and eventually it should say something like "i found an installation, do you want to repair it?" pick that option. As a result of the clone, you have two identical drives (same drive leters) but Windows knows somthing has changed.
If so, try "fixboot" and "fixmbr" in the XP Recovery Console. this contact form I do have an XP CD arond here somewhere, but have not done those commands. I see i acronis I can just select the C: drive. Previously, I formated the whole disk in NFTS using windows and maybe the partition was created by some reason.
The next selection(differnt option) or 2nd step in the bios is to select the actual hard drive (by actual model number) which is to be used as the boot device. I figure I should be kind enough to update the conclusion of this little adventure.

Since the device drivers are abstracted from hardware, the startup process does not fail due to driver mismatches. SSD -> new SSD same MB YES it is acceptable and I do do that. At the new prompt, you type: select disk 0

IOW, all data, programs etc from the src are on the dst but the thing wont boot. I personally like using Karen's Replicator for bulk copying.
