I am attempting to clone a laptop hard drive to another laptop hard drive using ghost 2003 dos with a desktop computer. I had used this method once before about 9 months ago on the same computer with no issues. On this try, my xp shuts down a few minutes after accessing the ghost dos application on floppy disk (I do not even get to start the clone). It is definitely connected to using the floppy and not the two laptop hard drives. I tested by disconnecting the laptop hard drives. The shutdon will occur as long as the computer boots to the floppy. I created a new disk and experienced the same problems. Any help would be appreciated.
Problem solved. I purchased a copy of Acronis True Image 2009 and it worked like a charm.
