The problem(s) with a mfg cloneing utility is that they simply will not work
in xp....To clone a hd,use xps own XCOPY,have youre newly formatted hd with
a primary partition set on the same IDE chain as C:,go to run,type:
XCOPY C:\*.* D:\ /c/h/e/k/r Agree to all in the DOS window,when the DOS
window closes,its thru.

The usual method is to use the cloning program that many
disk manufacturers make available free of charge on their
home site.
