I have two issues both related to cloning a new Hard Drive, but at this point I'm most concerned about getting my computer to boot.
I can't get my laptop to boot Windows Vista
I attempted to clone a new WD 500GB Scorpio Blue hard drive from the original 80GB HD that came with my laptop (Compaq Presario V6000 series, runs Windows Vista). I used the apricorn drivewire adapter and SW to clone the new hard drive and it told me that it was a successful clone. However, the only way that I was able to run the clone was by installing the new 500GB HD in the machine and hooking up the adapter to the original 80GB HD. Because of this I had to boot the cloning SW from my USB flash drive. I thought that I followed all the directions but now I can't boot the system with either the old 80GB HD installed or the new 500 GB HD. I've manually changed the boot order in the BIOS and also tried selecting the drive to boot from on the startup and I still get just the flashing cursor. I then ran a hard drive test on the old 80GB hard drive in the BIOS menu and it doesn't return any errors. Hoping that somebody sees something simple that I'm missing.
