Hi guys,

I am having trouble migrating Windows XP from an old hard drive to a replacement one.

I am using a 2Ghz Mac Pro, with Boot Camp 2.0 and Running Leopard. I have just bought a new hard drive to replace the drive that has Windows on. I have Windows on a 400GB hard drive 32GB Windows/The rest Mac OS Extended Journaled. My goal is to move Windows to 160GB separate hard drive. I have been trying to use carbon copy to move everything across. Once done I remove the old drive and hold down the option key during boot, select the new windows drive and then it tells me unrecognizable boot disk blah blah. Can anyone shed any light on this?
QUOTE Thanks
