I can't see what you have to work with and on one of my old desktops you would never be able to clone from the IDE to the SATA drive and have it boot/function on the SATA drive. So that's a dead end and one of a few hundred I know of.
What's wrong with letting it format a target drive?
And why not CLONEZILLA?
I am trying to clone one drive to a new drive. I am using EaseUS Todo Back up 6.0. My computer recognizes the new disc but ask me if I want to initialize it. The cloning software does not recognize the new disc so I only get disc one listed for the source disc and the target disc which of course will not work. I am doing this on a computer that is not connected to the internet. I always thought that if you were cloning from a disc with an OS on it already you did not have to initialize the new disc that it would format during the cloning process. I have never done a clone before so I guess my questions are, 1. Do I have to be connected to the internet to clone if I already have the software on the computer? 2. Do I have to initialize the new disc before the cloning software will recognize it? If not how do I get the cloning software to recognize the new drive?
Any help truely appreciated, Thank You..
