Bug Report

Postby edlight » Thu Sep 15, 2011 7:01 pm

I can't follow up on suggested fixes because I did a workaround, but
here's a bug report for BIBM 104.b.

This is using a Western Digital Caviar SE 80G, and a Western Digital
Caviar Blue 1T EALS, without the Advanced Format.

I had an image made of Win 7 from the 80, and restored it to the 1T, but
when trying to make a Menu Item to boot that, I got an error message.
Can't remember what it was exactly, but it was something like the
partition has to be in the MBR. I tried putting it in there, but it
didn't make any difference. Everything was EMBR.

My workaround was just copy the partition over using BIBM. Now it was
accepted into a Menu Item. Not so great, as I couldn't use byte-fro-byte
compare.

That was saying for the boot drive you choose, the boot partition you choose
was not in the MBR Details list (on the right) for that hard drive. I don't
think it would have to do with image restore or copy in disk imaging vs
using partition to copy over the partition. If you had that state again, a
partinfo listing is what would be needed and a screen shot showing that boot
item (edit boot item).
