Migrating from SCSI boot drive to SATA boot fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to replace my old SCSI 40GB drive with a SATA 320GB drive so 1) I can have more space and 2) I can use CMS backup and 3) This is really old hardware.  Did the migration with Western Digital's product and also tried again with Acronis  Migrate and in both scenarios I end up with a machine that stops on boot with black screen message "Reboot and Select proper boot device).  I get the message when I have the SCSI controller/drives unplugged.  System still comes up fine if I plug the SCSI gear back in but it booted up on the old SCSI boot drive. Windows Explorer shows the new SATA drive available as P: even though I told it to rename it C:.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • This is the Windows Home Server forum. You should try a forum for your operating system (not Windows Home Server; it won't install on a system drive less than about 65 real GB in size) or for the disk cloning software you're trying to use.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
