Windows XP - EISA Partition - wiill it Clone ?

I'm running XP Home edition. My PC was purchsed fully built with XP installed(no XP CD provided).

I have two SATA hard drives of the same spec.,

I've attempted to clone the system drive using Casper XP. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to copy the EISA Partition over and XP will not load using the cloned drive.

Would teh same problem occur if I used Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image ? Or am I not using Casper XP properly ?

Grateful for any advice ........

If you'd have read Casper XP FAQ you'd found that it doesn't clone your wished context. Probable latest Ghost version would do it. For Acronis, just ask them by filling the Feedback form.

you should have the XP CD

included with your computer or a restore CD set. You should also have a complete set of CDs with everything factory installed including drivers and software.

This is not a minor problem. If you need to repair, reinstall or otherwise fix your operating system, you can't. I'd recommend you contact the company and see about getting the CD. Afterall, you paid for the operating system when you bought the machine and should have a copy.
