Hello,

Diskpatch tries to clone everything 1 : 1. So, if it can copy everything from a booting disk then the clone should be able to boot as well. If the source boots and is swapped for the clone, the clone should boot as well. Make however sure, that once the clone finished, you power down and then immediately swap the disks. If you allow the Windows installation on the source to 'see' the clone strange things may happen haiving to do with drive letter assignments.

The read errors we get are time-outs. So, the disk firmware decides the read takes too long and decides to abandon the read and thows an error instead. Maybe a disk health report (report.txt on DP diskette) can reveal what's going on.

Hi,

Unfortunately the disk does not boot.  I do not see a report.txt in the DP File.

A disk health report file will first have to be created, look here for details:

The Smartcheck was unable to write the file (it was trying to write it to the bad internal drive (a:) and threw error code 153 "unknown command given to the driver"  I tried going into 'Enable/Disable File saving/logging' to switch to saving to drive C: (the usb drive) but it appears I need a registration key at that point.

also, just before the error the onscreen message says:  Drive 0 Maxtor yT250M0, Capacity 238475 MB, Temp 38 celcius, Perf.: 100%, Power On: 756 Days, 15 Hours, 32 Mins, Health 100%

The 100% suggests the disk is okay, which doesn't seem to be the case. Makes pinpointing the problem a bit tricky, but the advice to clone the disk still is valid. Unless the disk doesn't hold anything of importance, in which case it can simply be replaced. Maybe connecting it to another PC gives different results, might be handy to try, to help identify the problem's source.
