CLONE drive from sata to scsi , won't boot in Hard Disk Drives (HDD) Posted February 23, 2009 · Edited February 23, 2009 by troop · Report reply Did you remove the SATA disk after cloning and before rebooting? Yes, and dissabled the ide and sata controllers on the motherboard. I've been working on this for 5 days now and we all know how long a backup/restore/clone/win-install can take. It's got to be a driver missing/overwrite issue as a basic new win-install works fine. But after a fresh win-install and a tape restore it won't boot if I chose to overwrite all, if I choose to only overwtire older files it will boot but i'm missing most of my setup/programs etc. Same with don't overwrite anything. Is this still an issue ? I assume you use XP which has native drivers for the scsi card. You are missing a good clone app. Use Casper I clone a sata to a scsi drive and vice versa all the time--no issue, no drivers for one , not the other.
