Re: IDE to SATA Guide

There is a way without doing a repair install or reinstalling any application whatsoever.

The problem with the blue screen occurs whenever you clone a HDD with your system on it.
Windows won't make your cloned HDD drive C:, and that leads to various internal "path not found" errors, that produce the blue screen.

The solution is quite "simple": You have to edit a registry key. Somewhere Windows stores which physical HDD gets assigned which drive letter. You need to change it. I forgot where exactly it's stored, either MS' KB articles hepled, or just google. I forgot what the key names where, something with "Volume" in it in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE...

I did that myself a while ago...
Well, that's nicer than re-installing.

Use something like Windows PE or Winternals Boot CD or something to get to regedit...
