A disk read error occurred - Press ctrl alt del to restart
I created a bootable ISO of Acronis Disk Director 12077 (WinPE based).
I booted the computer (Windows XP SP3) with the bootable disc and cloned the first disk onto the second disk:
first disk: Western Digital WD1600AAJS (160 GB, contains WinXP SP3 and all my data)
second disk: Seagate ST3500418AS (500 GB, empty, sealed from the factory)
I used all the default options proposed by Acronis Disk Director (automatically resize the partition in the destination disk to fill the entire disk, "NT signature" was left unchecked).
I turned off the computer, disconnected the first disk, and connected the second disk in its place (I used the same SATA port on the mainboard, the SATA0 port).
I turned on the computer and I was greeted with this message:
A disk read error occurred
Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart
Is this normal behaviour?
Please note that I used all the default options, I didn't change any option.
