Would someone please take a minute to tell me what I am doing wrong here. I am helping someone with their six year old Dell with a 30 gig drive that is almost full. I have spent hours trying to move that data to a 320 gig to replace the 30 gig, but the new drive will not boot. I used Norton to backup the data to the new drive, then I restored the data on the new drive. Everything seems to be there. When I pulled out the old drive and moved the new drive to first plug on the IDE ribbon to see if it would boot and operate, I got NTLDR missing. I put the new drive back in and copied the entire i386 folder onto the new drive, fixing that problem, but now, it stops with some long message about the path or hardware configuration. I looked on the new drive, which is E:, to see if everything was really there, and it had everything in folder called c. So, I copied all of that so the i386 and other folders would be found right after e:, and not in some folder. Still the same result. I am thinking I just need to make some simple change, and we'll be in business with it booting and operating from the new drive. Any thoughts, or just give up and load XP onto the new drive? Thanks a lot.
