this hard drive is what I am upgrading to
here are the specs:
cylinders=11400 heads=255 sectorspertrack=63 sectorsize=4096
totalsectors=183141000 disksize= 750.14GB=750145536000 Bytes
upgrading from the following toshiba 80GB drive:
cylinders=9122 heads=255 sectorspertrack=63 sectorsize=512
totalsectors=146544930 disksize= 75.03GB=75031004160 Bytes
after staring the copy process, clonezilla hangs for a little while and then crashes. This is after the setup phase or whatever it;s called.
I think the issue is the difference in sector sizes.
welcome to the real world. drive manufacturers are now making large sectored SATA drives, and it's breaking disk software left and right. microsoft warned about this some time back, but nobody saw it I guess. so I recoded my programs.
I have not found one disk upgrade software that works doing this upgrade, and I have tried 4.
please fix. I need something fast.
