I've been experimenting for quite a while, trying to find a reliable, reproducible procedure for making an exact copy of the full XP and everything that is in the "Master" partition on my hard drive. I want a duplicate that I can just plug in, when my main drive fails. I have Partition Magic 8 and Drive Image 7........and I have no trouble making a copy which boots as HDD-1 when I change my BIOS. But when I try the copy as a stand-alone, setting BIOS back to HDD-0, it does not boot past the light blue Windows screen. I'd appreciate hearing from anybody who has a detailed, step-by-step procedure, using the software I mentioned, which he or she has found to work every time, and give a clone which is indistinguishable from the original.
