Windos 7 x64
 
 
Dual boot with cloned copy - boot problem

Hi all,

I have windows 7 x64 installed, and need to copy that partition to another partition on the same drive, and be able to boot between the two using EasyBCD. One will be normal/office stuff, the other will be music production stuff.

I copied the partition (C) using Acronis (bootCD mode) no problem, then copied that Acronis clone to the new partition (D). Booted back in to windows and used EasyBCD to add the new partition (D) to the boot menu with a new name.

Now when I boot I get the boot choices as expected, but no matter which one I choose, it always boots into the original partition (C)? I've used EasyBCD quite a bit before without problems but this one is driving me nuts.

Any suggestions? Obviously various boot related files are getting copied to the second drive along with all the other files - is this whats causing the problem?

Cheers!

Gary.
