I bought a new seagate momentus hybrid drive and my dell cimension e521 won\'t boot from it? I have latest 1.1.11 BIOS, used clonezilla and gparted to clone C:, and made sure boot flag was set. Changed HDD bootn sequence and even disable SATA 0 drive, all to no avail.

Hope this helps you. BIOS

Those links were helpful, but I believe the base problem with using clonezilla and trying to get it to boot from the cloned drive is the difference in sector size between the old 160 GB drive and the new 750 GB drive. And I'm not willing to reinstall Windows and all of the other software I have. Thanks, but I figure there isn't a solution for this problem short of that.
