Windows 7: Does Win7 have to be on 1st physical volume for cloned backup?

It seems to be a problem with Easeus either not setting the volume value, or a disk signature collision. That won't matter for XP.

7 is different.

In future, it is much easier to make an image, then restore the image to another HD.

If you follow my previous 2 posts, you should be fine.

Thanks. I will have to do a fresh backup, which shouldn't take long, and let you know.

Boot into the ORIGINAL win7. Then open an ADMINISTRATOR command prompt, and run this file:

Okay.

The fix seems to have gotten me back in the game. I'll have to look into it deeper at another time. I believe your suspicion of an incorrect drive parameter is a good bet. Thanks again for all your help.
