Re: Ghost 15 Copy Drive Failure

So far I think the partition alignment may just be the problem.
When I created these partitions in XP I made them all 20GB primaries using the value of 20480MB.
I booted to another PE disk and deleted all the partitions. Then I used Partition Magic (just because it was handy).
To boot into DOS and create 4 primary partitions 20GB in size, since PM doesn't know about offset partitions they were all created with cylinder alignment just like XP would make them.
I then booted to the Ghost disc and restored the 4 images into those existing empty partitions. Again restoring "all 4 at once" like Deric preferes.
Everything worked fine, I can boot into each of the 4 operating systems with no problems or without having to fix anything.
EasyBCD shows all the entries are present just like before making the image.
Curiously, I did not get the extra entry added to the boot menu this time. Perhaps that only gets added if something changes and maybe that explains why I have never seen anything added to the boot menu before.
Still have a few more things to test before moving on to copy drive.
