Windows 7: Booting from cloned drive - Macrium

Booting from cloned drive - Macrium

Hi all,

I've just cloned a hard drive on a laptop which I then tried to boot from (switched over hard drives installing new cloned drive).

I keep receiving the error message, "no operating system".

One thing that i have noticed is that the letter on the drive is F and not C.

Does anyone know how to change over the drive letter or how to boot from a cloned drive using Macrium.

thanks

Choose Auto drive letter selection when cloning, also to copy the MBR and track 0.

Make sure the clone then becomes set first HD to boot in BIOS setup.

If it won't start, try unplugging all other HD's and peripherals. If it still wont' start confirm the Win7 partition (or it's 100mb Sys Reserved partition if you have it) is Partition Marked Active
and then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times

I'm curious if someone knows the reason. It is quite unusable as it. I don't know if it'll get better with time...

How do I change a cloned SATA drive to use as a backup drive
