Unable to clone new 1TB seagate barracuda st310005n1a1as-rk drive with the supplied disk wizard version 11 downloaded from the support website.
I am perplexed that I have arrived so far out front of the technology wave that my $400 in new parts to make a new average or so computer for the kid has my new 1TB drive useless as a boot drive.
I have a Gigabyte G41M-es2l motherboard, E6300 Dual core at 2.8ghz, installed windows 7 clean install on an old WD 320GB eta drive. All that stuff works, connects to internet lan fine, downloads updates fine etc. Used gigabyte disk to update all windows 7 drivers. All that works fine.
When i try to install the new SATA drive, the seagate softare won't see the drive.
Windows7 disk manager see's the seagate drive, formats the seagate drive to ntfs, healthy, and I am able to see the drive as drive G and load files to it and see them on the disk manager.
When I load the segate disk wizard, that loads fine, then restarts computer, but when diskwizard is run, an error message pop's up and says "at least one seagate or maxtor product must be installe dto use this softawre, go to Acronis and buy there full version ".
Any ideas welcome?
