Windows On Mac :: Moving Bootcamp To New Hard Drive With Winclone

Sep 29, 2010

I made an attempt to use Winclone to move Win7 (NTFS, 64-bit) to a new hard drive. After the image was deployed I rebooted. On the new drive,Win7 BSODs - I can't even boot into command line mode as it summarily reboots. The original bootcamp partition boots perfectly, however. I know Winclone was discontinued - assuming other people have used it with Win7 and have not had problems, without having to use Win7's DVD to do a repair install or to - for the moment - delete the original bootcamp partition that I know works, are there any means to fix the boot sector or alleviate this problem? (I think the BCD wants to point to the wrong partition, despite it starting to boot on its own...)

Windows On Mac :: Transferring Bootcamp Partition To New MBP Using Winclone?

Apr 23, 2010

I have Windows 7 installed on my mid 2007 MBP and just purchased the new MBP. I used winclone to clone the partition, and transfered it to the new partition on the new MBP.

Everything went smoothly with winclone, but windows fails to launch, it crashed on the load screen and trying to restart pops the windows error screen saying that windows failed to start due to new hardware configuration.

I tried safe mode as well as booting with the disc and selecting repair.

Windows On Mac :: Moving Bootcamp Partition To New Drive?

Dec 24, 2010

I recently swapped the 500Gb WD drive out of my Macbook Pro for a 500Gb Seagate Momentus XT drive. OSX transferred across without any trouble, but despite using WinClone to backup the Bootcamp partition (running Windows 7 64-bit) I haven't been able to restore it successfully. What happens is that it appears to restore, and I get the dual boot screen when I hold down the Alt key, but on selecting Windows I end up getting a screen saying that some component or other is missing. I might choose simply to use Windows 7 under Parallels on this machine if I am faced with a full restore, since that way I can more easily backup the Windows side, and since it's running (MUCH) better since swapping drives. However, IDEALLY I'd prefer to restore my existing partition...

Windows On Mac :: Possible To Put Bootcamp On Portable Hard Drive?

Dec 5, 2010

Can I put boot camp onto a portable/external HDD and change boot options to run the HDD on start up? I have a very new macbook (its my first mac), so don't want to start messing around with partitions etc., as I am very new to macs...

I'm also wondering if there is a Linux/Ubuntu emulator available for the mac? And if there is one, would it be possible to partition an external hardrive into three segments, one for Bootcamp, one for Linux, and one for time capsule?

Windows On Mac :: Going To Install XP - BootCamp Hard Drive

Jan 13, 2011

Last time I did this I ended up reinstalling my whole computer because I took out the Cd under the installation. And it don't seems like that I partitioned it or what it's called. I have done it now but I did go back and I shut down BootCamp assistant and now I have 2 hard drives Macintosh Hd and BootCamp but what I was wondering about is that if I going to install will the install be made on the BootCamp hard drive automatically?

Windows On Mac :: Can't Partition Hard Drive With Bootcamp?

May 14, 2009

I had windows in a bootcamp partition for a while, and today, i decided to erase the partition and make a new, bigger one. I erased it just fine, but I can't make another one, it just gives me this error: Verification failed: this disk could not be partitioned. Use disk utility to repair this disk. I went to disk utility and i clicked verify disk (repair disk was not highlighted) and it gave me another error: filesystem verify or repair failed. I also repaired disk permissions with no such luck.

OS X :: Partition Hard Drive - Bootcamp And Windows 7?

Jul 31, 2010

I'm getting a new imac in a weeks time, and was wondering about bootcamp. When I wanted to dual-boot a PC and Linux, I had to partition the hard-drive and install the OSes before doing anything else. Do I need to do that for bootcamp and Windows 7? I only really need windows on bootcamp for a game that's coming out in 2011. Do I need to install it now or can I wait?

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Won't Partition - Wipe Hard Drive?

Jun 17, 2009

I previously had a Windows partition that I created with Boot Camp. I was running out of room and wanting to try out Windows 7, so I deleted it and tried to create a larger one. So far, i have not been able to create a new partition. The error I'm currently getting reads "Verification failed. This disk could not be partitioned. Use Disk Utility to repair this disk." When I do that, I usually get that it needs repairing, I repair it, and then it happens again. I've done the repairing using the Leopard DVD or booting from another hard drive that's bootable. Another error I was getting said there is currently data there that cannot be moved. That errors told me to back up, wipe my hard drive, and do a reinstall. I really don't want to have to do that, and I really don't NEED Windows, but I did recently want to play some games and dug up my old games for Windows.

Mac :: Install Windows 7 Via Bootcamp Using An External USB Hard Drive?

Oct 23, 2009

I have the Windows 7 .iso from Microsoft, but I can't burn it to a DVD as it's too large. I do have a 1TB external HDD, though. Is there a way I can put the .iso on that, and when I go to set up windows it installs off the drive instead of a disk?

Windows On Mac :: External Hard Drive Not Visible In BootCamp Vista

Mar 23, 2009

I have a new imac (love it!) and have installed vista on a 32Gb partition using Boot Camp. I was planning on saving files I create in vista on the external Hard drive. But I can't see it when I'm in Vista so can not save files to it. It is a terrabyte disk and is used by Time machine. Is there anyway I can save to it or should I add another external HD just for windows, I can see it when I go to system hard ware (it says seagate HD etc but there is no info on files sizes etc-there is a button which says populate but I dare not press it as I'm scared it will screw up my back ups) Another irritation is that when I reboot back to mac it throws out the internet and I have to reset the modem and router so it works again.

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Assistant Error After Upgrading Hard Drive

Jun 19, 2009

I have a 13" white macbook, which I had partitioned with Bootcamp. When I decided to upgrade to a 500 GB drive I didn't want to reinstall everything, so after ordering and installing my new harddrive, I used super duper to clone my mac volume onto the new drive. [URL]. It worked like a charm for the mac volume, but did not copy my windows volume. No problem, I figure, I will just run the boot camp assistant again, b/c I didn't have that much on that volume anyway. However when I booted up in my new 500 gb mac drive, the Boot Camp Assistant would not work and generated an error message stating. "The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

Only problem is, my drive was already formatted as an extended journaled volume. I erased it and reformatted and recloned from super duper just to double check, but still got the same error message. Then I tried to start from scratch, and erased the drive again and tried to install an operating system from the dvd. I got another error message saying that the hard drive could not be partitioned and that I needed to use disk utility to reformat the disk as a GUID partition. However I couldn't figure out how to do that, and couldn't find anything on the disk utility that said GUID. it took a call to mac support (thanks mark!) to figure it out. Thought I would post it here in case anyone else has the same problem. It turned out that the hard drive I'd ordered was somehow not set up the way as my old one.

The solution was:
1. boot from the mac os DVD
2. go into disk utility, select the new hard drive, and choose the partition tab
3. change the number of partitions from "current" to "1"
4. then the 'options' button becomes available, and you can go in and select to format as a GUID drive.
from that point on, I was able to proceed with installing Mac OS x, install all the software updates, and run the boot camp partition.

Once I had the hard drive partitioned properly I used Super Duper to clone my mac volume onto the new drive, and then used Winclone to clone the windows drive. for some reason the main site for winclone is down right now - two canoes - but I got a working copy here: [URL] none of the help info on two canoes was available yesterday or today either so I had a little trouble figuring out how to use it. (though others have said it's super easy...). I wasn't sure where to save the disk image, on a mac or windows volume and on my old or new drive. The way I ended up doing it (that worked) was:
1. open winclone, and in the 'image' tab, create an image and save it on the mac volume of the new hard drive. (I couldn't save it on the old drive b/c there wasn't enough room)
2. then, still in winclone, go to the 'restore' screen and restore from the mac volume of the internal hard drive to the windows volume.

Windows On Mac :: Moving Bootcamp Partition To SSD?

Apr 2, 2010

I'll be moving my OS and Apps on my MacPro to an Intel 160GB SSD, while keeping the home directory (except for the home library) on an HD using Carbon Copy Cloner.

At least that was the plan until I thought about my bootcamp partition with Win7. Whats the best solution for moving the Win7 partition or will I need to rerun boot camp and reinstall Win 7?

MacBook :: Migrating Contents Of Hard Drive To New One / Hard Drive Has Partition For Bootcamp?

Jul 27, 2009

I have an aluminum unibody macbook from October 2008. I'm looking to upgrade the 160 GB hard drive inside to a 500 GB one I'm considering from Newegg. Would it be possible to migrate/copy/clone the entire contents of my current hard drive to the 500 GB one? I also have a section of my current hard drive partitioned for Bootcamp. Would this affect my ability to transfer everything over?

If this is possible at all, how can I go about doing so? If there are steps laid out somewhere, I'd appreciate a referral. Sorry if my question is a little elementary, but I did a search on these forums and also google and nothing really came up

Windows On Mac :: Winclone Says Errors Found

Nov 22, 2010

I had a 320gb hd drive in my mbp that was running out of space. So I ordered a 750gb drive to replace it. My mbp is partition 25% Mac 75% Windows. I used Carbon Copy to clone the Mac side of the drive to the new drive.Then placed the new drive in the mbp.I then used sys utilities to partitions the new drive 25% Mac & 75% windows. The I downloaded Winclone to the Mac side and attempted to make a image of the old bootcamp partition. I selected to save it to an external drive that is formated for Mac.

About 80% in the Winclone stopped and said Errors Found see logs.Tech support can't figure out why it's not making the image.Then they suggested I turn off the screen saver. So that's where I am not.

Windows On Mac :: Restoring WinClone (Vista) Backup

Jun 22, 2009

I used WinClone to save a Vista backup on my external drive (Mac formatted), removed the Vista partition using Boot Camp, recreated a new partition using Boot Camp, and then attempted to restore my Vista backup using WinClone. (When I recreated a new partition using Boot Camp, I left it as FAT32. I didn't use a Windows CD to change it to NTFS, because I believed WinClone does it for you automatically.) When I tried to restore my backup, WinClone gives me an error message (click on the thumbnail below for full-sized version). I have no idea what went wrong. Can anyone suggest a solution for me please?

Windows On Mac :: New Computer BSOD (Restoring From Winclone)

So I had a Macbook with Windows 7 partition (RTM from MSDNAA since I need it for Visual Studio 2008) and I created a backup with Winclone. I got a new MBP 13" and so tried to install the partition from Winclone.. It says that it was restored successfully but when I start up my computer I get BSOD and my computer keeps restarting. (Think its due to hardware change?) I cannot even repair it with the windows 7 cd.

Windows On Mac :: Boot Camp Set Up Via Winclone Trackpad - Not Working

Apr 16, 2009

I wanted to move my current version of XP set up on an early 2008 MacBook across to a new silver unibody macbook. I used winclone and the new boot camp partion was fully set up and will boot up fine into the windows log in screen. The only problem is that the keyboard and the trackpad will not work. I'm guessing that when I installed on my old MacBook that it only installed the drivers that I needed and not ones for the new MacBook.

Windows On Mac :: Restoring Boot Camp Image To SSD With WinClone?

May 23, 2010

I've got Windows 7 x64 Ultimate installed on my Crucial C300 SSD in the OptiBay drive and have backed up the image using WinClone prior to updating the SSD firmware. When checking the WinClone forums I noted that users have reported they were unable to restore their Boot Camp images to an SSD via WinClone. Some have even bricked their drives and have had to have them replaced.

Has anyone had success with the latest version or should I avoid restoring my WinClone image and perform a clean installation from scratch?

OS X :: Moving Hard Drive From Dead Mac To New Mac

Jan 31, 2010

My original white Macbook just died after 3.5 years. It turns on in the sense that the white light works but there is no actual startup. I took it to the Apple store and they told me the logic board would need to be replaced. The computer itself is pretty beat up so I figure it's time for a new one. I plan on buying a Macbook Pro this week. How can I get files off of my old MacBook? The logic board is dead so I can't really do much. Any advice? Thank You. Also, there is no way I want to pay Apple $100 for their One-to-One transfer program.

Applications :: Moving ITunes To New Mac AND Hard Drive

Nov 11, 2010

I can't find a thread that addresses my particular problem, so I'm hoping somebody out there can point me in the right direction. I have a 100gb iTunes folder on my MacBook which I wish to transfer to my new iMac. Rather than simply copy it across to the iMac's HD, I would rather copy it to an external HD and then run iTunes from the external HD connected to my iMac. So my question is simply what is the best way to do this.
Also, can anyone recommend a great external HD which won't expire after 6 months?
