I used DriveImage XML to backup a 40GB IDE system disk (Windows XP) and restore it to a blank 80GB IDE. After the restoration, I switched the IDE cables and made sure the system will boot to the 80GB but I got boot failure error after POST.
Note that when I used EaseUS DiskCopy on same set of disks to do the same thing, it works. I was able to boot the 80GB disk. My only problem with EaseUS DiskCopy is it divided my 80GB to 40GB/40GB.
My question now is:
- What's the problem with the DriveImage XML method and how can I fix it?
- For the EaseUS DiskCopy, how can I maintain 80GB partition when copying a 40GB disk?
BTW, if it means anything, the system disk that I backed-up is active and it's where DriveImage XML is running.
