I had a system with programs I have installed and the setup and imaged it with acronis or for any matter, it could have been a perfect clone drive copy because the program isnt the issue. My i5 - 2500k achi windows 7 was imaged to a new hard drive and attempted to run on a AMD Phenom 4x 9500.Now before you go telling me about the three hard drive modes, Raid , IDE and ACHI. I've edited the registry and have tested all three modes to correspond with the motherboard bios setting of the drive. I assume its IDE or ACHI, which I've tried loading windows on the orginal machine, editing the registry settings, then trying it again on another machine.Where I am at now is it goes to classpnp.sys when im watching safe mode and stalls there. Im noticing before it was stalling at disk.sys but i think i fixed that via the registry settings for the hard drive mode.Tried to make a generalized image by using sysprep got the error fatal error because i guess its used more than three times, dont understand what disarm command they are talking about for workaround since the xml file doesnt exist.

I have tried ACRONIS 2011 Image with Universal Settings mode (that is supposed to remove hard ware specific settings)I have also tried using the windows disc, going into launchup repair, repair startup.I also went recovery console, then tried renaming classpnp.sys to classpnp.old.I tried several options using the Ultimate Boot disk but its not the boot up mbr as it boots up , its the loading of one of the system files/drivers that make it fail.The reason why im trying to just clone one hard drive and put it on another system is because, everything is installed, the programs, etc. Its saving me god bloody 2 days with setting up the programs, although Im getting close to over a day trying to figure out whats the big dela with getting this to work on another computer.additional information : I do not need any user specific preferences, documents, files or settings, everything can go, i just want this installation with about 25 gig of programs, to load and work.If you know of a program thats fairly easy to use considering im already one day into doing this, then let me know and tell me what im looking to do and some instructions are great.Either way, im waiting for an answer, will be here next 3 hours.im on skype as well, this user name is spelt backwards for security reasons.
