Yeah it is...
But I just checked the laptop and it finally finished Authenticating... So I did the emergency boot, now I will try to "Remove and Reboot" then clone the drive.
I suspect the drive may be going, but there was a power outtage last night and the laptop was ungraciously booted, so that may be the issue as well.
I will keep you posted, and once this is in the clear I will mark it as solved.
keep your fingers crossed...
Well it is not quite over... I was able to clone the drive, but when I boot off the drive I get a 92h error.
This is after I removed Encryption and rebooted the system via remove and reboot.
Should I use the SafeTech Disk to repair the MBR or the MS utilities?
To recap, I removed Encryption created an image of the drive via ghost, then swapped out the drive and imaged it onto the new drive.Message was edited by: trichter on 1/22/10 2:38:28 PM GMT-05:00
FIXMBR - Bad... Resulted in No Operating System Found. The guy I am working with had kicked off the whole fixmbr process before I had a chance to try Peter's way.
I am reimaging the drive and will try Peter's way and see if it works.
Worst case, I will rebuild Laptop and move client's data back via Ghost Explorer.
With the image of the drive on a server I am can try different scenarios to see which one works best.
