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
NTLDR is missing
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?

- Rep Power
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!
