    Help me make a clone of my Fusion 640M Hard Drive

    Reaching out to you guys for help. Im trying to copy the hard drive on my 2002 VTC200C with Fusion 640M control. My Hard drive is on its ways out.
    I have used several clone utility's with no luck. I have heard that the control looks at the hard drive serial number to see if its the right one before booting windows....is this correct?
    I cannot get the cloned drives ive made to boot. I can boot these drives when i hook them to another computer though. confused about why .
    I have changed the volume serial number to the same as the one thats in my machine but this didnt work either.
    I have read that some of the higher up mazak service gurus know how to do this...hoping someone can help me out. Mitsubishi wants 1900 for a $80 drive, ridiculous.

    Ive used utility's from HDDGURU and Winimage. I use winimage to copy my centroid drives and also bridgeport DX drives, works great for those.

    Im willing to pay someone $100 that can help me do this! LOL

    you can use the basic ghost 8.2 dos based which is available free on the internet. But I would like to know further data because compatibility of new HDD also matters.
    1) What is the current HDD capacity and the new HDD capacity.
    2) What is the PC card model : PC004/PC010/PC020/PC102.

    Maybe the cloning procedure that you are following may be wrong resulting in error.
