I have cloned my hard drive and replaced it with the cloned drive however, the cloned drive will not boot. Did I do something wrong? :)

worst case if you can't get the new drive to boot would be to format it and then connect up the original drive and boot from it...then use HDclone here to clone the drive to the new drive...the only limitation on the free version is the drive your cloning to has to be larger than the original...the paid versions do not have that limitation...I have used this many times successfully...only complaint I have is its slow ..the paid versions are faster
