Migrate Easy 7.0 Boot Problem
Dell Inspiron 1720
Wanted to replace my original 160 gb with a western digital 500gb. This is how I assumed it would work:
Execute Acronis Migrate Easy
I Chose automatic-figured I couldn't screw that up
I thought it would replace my C: and D: drive and make my new drive that I placed in the 2nd bay C: and D: and erase the original in bay 1. Instead it made the new drive F: and G: and didn't erase C: and D: on the original.
Now I am having all kinds of boot problems. I have removed the original drive and replaced the new drive in the first bay-wouldn't boot.
I left the new drive in bay 2 and removed the original drive in bay 1-wouldn't boot.
The only way I can get the OS to boot is with both drives in and hit F12 and select drive 2 to boot from, and that is only working half the time. I have changed the BIOS to boot from the 2nd before the first, and even deselected the first drive from the boot menu to see if that worked and it doesn't.
I need a way out of this. What I intended to do was to replace the original 160 gb drive with a 500 gb. Then add another 500 gb to the second drive as additional storage. I need to correct this ASAP. I also have the second additional 500 gb drive sitting around if that will help.
