In this guide I will show you how to clone a bad disk (disk with bad sectors but readable) to a new one and skip reinstalling Operating system.
In my case, I cloned my disk this way because Norton Ghost gived me “Inconsistency error” and wont allow me to finish the process.
First of all format your destination Hard drive (in NTFS file system)
Step 1: Download BootIce
BootIce is also available on Hirens Boot cd menu
Run BootIce and select the SOURCE Hard drive on the list
Click “Process MBR” and then “Backup MBR”
Save the file (mbr.bin)
Back to BootIce click “Process PBR” and then “Backup PBR”
Save the file (pbr.bin)
Again on BootIce menu, select the DESTINATION Disk from the list and click “Process MBR”
Click “Restore MBR” and open the saved “MBR.BIN” file we saved before
Click ok on all windows and on BootIce menu select “Process PBR” (with Destination disk still selected)
Click “Restore PBR”, select the previously saved “PBR.BIN” file and click ok.
Finished with the Boot sector clone. Lets copy files.
