My drives have been under that magic 137 GB mark.
You are aware that you can't repair install XP if you create a partition larger than this unless you have that shiny XP SP1 CD? I'll leave this as a warning without any deep details.
To go past 137 GB, my bet is only the latest Ghost, plus XP SP1 will be required.
XP Pro SP1. Currently have 2 80 gig Western Digital HDs as master and slave. Intend to buy a 200-250 gig WD HD.
I want to clone the primary master to the 200+ gig HD, then make the bigger HD the master. I have Norton Ghost, but never used it before.
Do I simply follow the prompts to clone "C" to the slaved, larger capacity HD, then master the 200+ gigger? I normally start with a fresh install, but want to avoid this if possible.
The current master has 2 partitions (C, E), but intend to clone C only. I also have Partition Magic installed if that makes any difference- not sure, but think I may have read this *may* cause cloning problems.
Will I run into any problems once I make the drive switch, being that I don't intend to clone the 2nd partition? I then intend to partition the 200+ drive using either disk management or PM. Just trying to head off any possible problems. All input/suggestions will be appreciated. TIA!
