comment How to Clone Win7 from 512b sectors to 4096b sectors
All that stuff applies and is good advice. The error was "Missing Operating System". I think I found the problem... knock on wood... something is wrong with the USB - SATA device. I put the 640G drive in the system and booted Linux... it was unreadable. I then rebooted with the 640 on the USB and it was perfectly readable. So now I'm using Acronis with the 250G drive on the USB and the 640 internal. Acronis isn't complaining anymore. I'll know in 4 hours or so if it worked.

I let Acronis wipe the partition table of the target drive, it was completely stuck until I created a dummy partition on the disk. The dummy partition was the full 640GB. When I did successfully get Acronis to execute a full disk clone (the manual settings and automatic scaling settings all failed), it reboots Windows and begins the clone, then stops, reporting "INTERNAL ERROR: Attempt to write outside partition". Have you successfully used Acronis to clone a 512b sector disk to a 4096b sector disk?

comment Remove logo and glare from Windows7 task bar
It's almost perfect. It's a shame that it's so hard to do something so simple. I wasn't able to get their "start orb" tool to hide the orb, but I did find "Start Killer" and replaced the start button with a link to a wsh script. tordex.com/startkiller/index.html
