Vista clone problem

Hi,
I cloned my vista hdd today as I bought a larger drive.
However when I boot up I get a can't find winloader.exe error.
I dont have the Vista CD so cant repair it.
How can I fix this new cloned hdd please?

Thanks
Amo

Re: Vista clone problem
You will need to plug your clone into the same plug on the MOBO as the
original drive. Swap the two cables. Usually should be done BEFORE
restarting the computer, but sometimes will work later. You can also swap
the boot priority in the BIOS.

Re: Vista clone problem
John, have you personally cloned an installation of Vista,
the partition for which was created by the Vista installer,
and booted the clone successfully from another partition
position? If so, what what the utility, and were any
"special procedures" needed to accomplish that?
