    Weird problem - HELP!

    I have 30 Samsung N145s here, installed XP and all our relevant software, drivers, patches etc onto one of them, then used True Image (from a boot CD) to do a disk to disk clone onto the other 29.

    When I come to putting the drives back in and booting them up, I'm getting a mixture of 3 errors, some of each:

    Black screen with white flashing cursor top left, nothing else

    or

    NTLDR is missing

    or

    Disk read error occured

    So something is wrong, clearly, but recloning doesn't seem to work, although I have managed to get 5 working by recloning. Any suggestions as to what might cause this?

    Did you select to perform the clone via sector-by-sector?

    Sorry, forgot I even posted this.

    I ended up curing the problem by using CloneZilla instead. Had to reclone all 30 machines, like, but it's done now!
