    Attempted to clone my 80 gig Seagate to a new 320 gig WD3200AAJB using the Acronis downloaded from WD's site. Used the automatic setting. The old and new partion sizes looked to be correct. The process ran through to completion with the instruction to reboot in order to complete the process. The reboot failed and produced a black screen. The old drive now only starts with the Windows XP splash screen coming up and the progress bar barely starting. At that point it reboots itself and continues in this loop.

    The new drive fails to boot with a MBR 1 error. My main concern is for recovering my original drive to the preclone condition. After that, to get the cloning done successfully.

    All help will be greatly appreciated.
