I've a laptop (IBM T42) which has its current bog standard 30GB disk, the user is running out of space and thus I'm upgrading them to a 160GB disk.
I'd rather avoid paying the Windows XP license again (It currently has an OEM IBM-provided install) so ideally I'd like to clone the small disk to the bigger. I attempted to do this using Clonezilla however it failed due to multiple corruption errors (I can't recall the exact error) on the main partition (secondary partition cloned fine) which is strange as Windows can boot into it fine. The image was being saved to a USB external drive and I attempted to restore which was successful however upon booting it fails with a disk error. I even re-tried with "dd" the famous disk replication tool however the same errors occurred.
How can I resolve this? I don't mind using a different cloning tool (or something else?) however would prefer it be free.
