I am looking for a simple way to clone a hdd that only seems to show up on the monitor when it is in safe mode. I can do it if I could load a program on a flash-drive, and I have the "Blac X" USB Docking Station. The OS is WinXP Pro.

The problem happened suddenly. I noticed my desktop icons had green, almost misty like streaks as if wind was blowing from the left to the right of the screen and causing the icons to lose particles of a greenish color, like the earliest DOS system computers were. (Those didn't have photos or video, it was just green text on the monitor.)

Hi :welcome:


Most disk imaging software will create a boot rescue disk or USB that can be used to create a backup image with windows off-line, check for example this article AOMEI Backupper Helps to Create Bootable CD or USB Flash Drive related to AOMEI Backupper free.

You can boot a live version of Linux, such as Knoppix, and then use the dd command to copy all of the data from the old drive to a new drive, if that is what you are looking to do.
