Problem After Cloning With Ghost 14

This has happened to me before, but it was so long ago I don't remember how I fixed it.

I cloned a disk from my laptop to an enclosure.  Everything went fine except now when I try to boot from my original disk, I get a screen that requires me to select my operating system before it will boot.  After I select the operating system (Vista), it boots up as normal.  Any suggestions?

By the way, the disk that I cloned didn't work either, but that didn't surprise me.  For some reason, when I put it in the computer, the computer doesn't recognize it -- the computer doesn't think there is a hard drive installed.  I was having this problem with it for a few days so I tried to go the "clone in an enclosure" route since the enclosure recognized the disk without a problem.

Re: Problem After Cloning With Ghost 14

Thanks redk9228 -- that did the trick.  For what it's worth, Ghost 14 has this problem too and apparently hasn't been addressed in Ghost 15.  It's no big deal if you can remember what to do to fix it.

Thanks again,

You're welcome. I've had that problem after a restore too.
