WinRE stopped working after upgrading HDD
Dell Latitude D810
Windows 7 Ent. RTM, clean install, no other OS
Clean install of Win 7 onto a 40 GB EIDE HDD. Decided I wanted to upgrade, purchased a 320 GB WD HDDD.
Created an image of the entire HDD, including the recovery partition, using Norton Ghost 11.5. Brought the image back down to the new hard drive.
Now, when I hit F8 and choose "Repair your Computer", I get the following error:
0xc0000225 The boot seelection failed because a required device is inaccessible
I did boot into WinRE using the DVD. I had it check for problems, said it found some, and asked me to reboot, which I did. This time, it was able to find my Windows 7 installation when I booted in via DVD. Did a chkdsk, everything looked fine.
When I'm in WinRE via the DVD, it's showing the recovery partition as C, my C drive as D, and my D drive as E. Not sure if this is part of the problem as all my drive letters are normal (C & D) when I'm booted normally into Windows 7.
Please note, I'm not having problems booting into Windows 7, just WinRE via the hidden partition.
I'm thinking that something changed when I brought the image back down to the new drive, I'm just not exactly sure how to correct this. Is there some kind of command I need to run while logged into WinRE via the DVD?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
