Win 7 not booting after ghosting
Hey, me again. I gave up on the win xp to vista ghosting as I haven't had time to hunt drivers down, so i just did a clean install of vista on the vista machine.
Now onto my new problem. The company bought 5 brand new computers, all the same hard drive, motherboards and everything. I decided to ghost the computer that I was using, once it had everything I felt it would need.
I did the imaging of my computer and installed it on one computer. It didn't work perfectly as far as I know, I get two boot locations come up on startup, Windows 7 and Windows Vista/Server 2008/Windows 7. If I choose the first option it gives and error of 0xc0000225. However choosing the second option loads windows 7 normally and perfectly. Not sure why that is.
However, the second computer I'm trying to ghost doesnt' do that. It goes straight to a secreen saying that same error code plus saying something to teh effect that it is inaccessible. I've tried numerous times to reimage the computer, I've tried the Windows 7 repair function on the official disk, and I've tried to recreate the bootmanager through the command prompt.
As I only have one week left I was hoping to get this sorted out as these are computers that are replacing two front desk computers that are really, really old.
Any help is much appreciated, thanks.
