You would get precisely those error messages if your copied installation is not on G or if the hive was already in use. Probably your reboot did the job.

Try booting into the copied installation.

Just booted the system and it started very smoothly without any errors. Thanks for the help, SIW2! I have marked the thread solved and also left you a rep!

It is a good idea to make images evrey so often. Plenty of good free versions for that.

Aomei works well, and will make a pe boot disc for you:
