I am replacing old maxed out IDE 80 gig HD. I have back-up image on external USB drive.
I used EASEUS Partition Master to copy partition from IDE to SATA. Will not boot.
I ran STARTUP REPAIR and restored from from backup image - will not boot.
I ran STARTUP REPAIR 3 times, no help
I used to BOOTSECT rebuild MBR, no help
I used SFC SCANNOW to scan drive. It says 'repair pending, restart' & I have done so 3 times, no change
I am reading about BCDboot from microsoft. Is that my next step?
BTW, in this troubleshooting, I have installed Windows 7 on the new drive. It goes quickly with no problems, runs fine. I have since reformatted the drive, trying to recover my stuff from my older install.
