Dual booting Windows 7 using a cloned image of the same Windows 7 on another drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to set up a dual boot via a Norton Ghost image of my Windows 7 being placed onto a second drive as a ready backup. The image is properly transferring to the backup drive, but after the image is done the backup drive is automatically being thrown offline due to a "collision" caused by the ID mark created by Windows in the boot loader from the main drive being identical to the one on the backup drive. Turning the drive to "online" doesn't allow the dual boot to work either.

    What forum would I post this problem to in order to get this issue resolved?
