I was cloning a larger HDD for my daughter's Lenovo T61p Thinkpad running Windows Vista using MigrateEasy 7.0. I ran the migration from the CD boot disk MigrateEasy generated having the formatted new (MomentusXT 500GB) HDD installed in the laptop and the original 180GB Hitachi HDD in a USB enclosure. The process worked fine and after about an hour or two, the cloning was completed "successfully". Unfortunately, when restarting the system off the new HDD, I started noticing problems when the windows login screen dropped the "fingerprint" option. I logged in with the password and Windows started to come up, then the screen went blank and never came back. I can do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and bring up the screen and look at Task Manager and was able to shut down from there. I can also boot up the system fine with the original HDD in the USB enclosure.

Any assistance in understanding the problem and how to get the new drive working would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If new disk is 'advanced format' ( 4kb physical sector size , 512 b logical) , these may be related ( windows update microsoft kb sector size site:forum.acronis.com )

I chatted with technical support and they recommended I go through the manual process to set up the cloning (vs. automatic). The cloning was successful and the new drive works now.
