I just bought a Seagate 320 gig HD to clone and use as a backup for my WD 250 gig C drive. I used Norton Ghost, which has been successful in the past but this time it failed after many hours of operation. Not wanting to waste many more hours trying Norton again I went to plan two. I couldn't find my Seagate Disk Wizard immediately so I used WD Data Lifeguard Tools and did a "drive to drive data copy". I won't bother with the details but it wasn't successful. Plan three was using Seagate Disk Wizard, which I found. I set up the HD with one partition, then did a "drive to drive data copy". Now I have a complete working copy of the C drive, which is 99% what I want, but the drive isn't bootable, black screen "No OS". In the past Norton Ghost has created a complete bootable second HD. I'll stick with what I've got if necessary, but I'd like the backup HD to be a complete bootable clone if possible. Easy, hard, time consuming, or not worth the trouble? Note, no Win XP (home) CD. Cheap SOB's don't supply one.
