    so far, i wanna clone my main drive to a new HD. no matter if i do disk to disk, or if i load the backup file in a new xp home installation, after a while, all other designs beside the classic design seem to die away.
    after 1 day it started to disappear sometimes,but reappeared until day 2, where suddenly, not the zune theme, but also the windows main theme werent useable, they even completly dissapeared from the designs list.
    ethernet drivers seem also corrupted, couldnt achieve a connection over crossover, that now, back in the original professional, works again. let me say it. it died soon like a real human clone would, if its production material was too old.:eek:

    any suggestions guys?

    ;)
    thanks for your help!

    try cloning the os with Hiren's boot disk. this will make an exact copy of the OS and you won't lose any info and your settings will stay the same.

    there is but it's not straight forward. try googling hirens boot disk usb and you might get lucky.

    But it would be faster and more reliable to pull a cd drive out of another pc.

    sorry i can't be more help.
