Cloning a bad source will only create another bad source, stating the obvious.

If your source copy doesn't boot, then something you modified is causing this. If you find a way to modify the registry, go backwards in the changes until it boots properly. Better yet, do you have a reference of the registry changes that were made? Perhaps that would help give direction to a solution.

I'm surprised Sean Webster hasn't given some input.

Yeah, that's the thing, the drive ran perfectly fine, it was at the point where I was ready to start a sysprep, hence the cloning, and when I fired up the drive again......... no boot, just a flashing curser! Something went awry when it got cloned, now I want to fix it so I don't have to start over! I don't like the idea of a traveling OS drive, but that's an unfortunate situation that cannot be avoided!

FYI.. The drive has XP, Vista, W7 and Fedora on a multiboot. ( Used from last term. The project requires a sysprep of W7, with a long list of customizations.

Can you sysprep any machine and run it in ANY computer?
