image partition from one system to another
 
should be a routine thing on paper ... alas

Bought emachines EL1700 as replacement
nforce 630i chipset

Current OS: Win2K
1) Installed nvidia drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.24.html (win2K is supported!)
2) Rebooted
3) Took image of drive
4) Put image on emachines

outcome 1
bleuscreen: inaccessible bootdevice

Re-doing this routine i noticed the SATA - drivers are not installed when installing the mentioned nvidia-driver.

Attempt 2
1) I installed the SATA-drivers manually in win2k (via "add hardware")
2) Rebooted
3) Took image of drive
4) Put image on emachines

outcome 2
bleuscreen: inaccessible bootdevice

humor
emachines hasn't got a floppy, can't do a clean W2K install (can't load sata-drivers)
There wasn't an install Vista disk with the emachines, don't know how to restore the Vista partition

thx for the link

didn't uninstall current IDE (and other) drivers belonging to current mobo/chipset

that might be cause of the issue , what chipset is your current system running?

It was VIA

uninstalled VIA drivers
re-installed NVIDIA drivers
image partition (no-reboot)
put image on emachines

:( same result

Must be the sata II drivers aren't compatible with W2K

Possible solutions:
Install fresh XP (vista is no solution as 2 main apps aren't compatible)
Intall Ubuntu + Wine

Most likely = solution 1
but where can i buy a license? someone willing to ship one (all expenses paid)?

If you don't manage to get there, I can drop by and ship it to you. In case they do difficult, because OEM cd's can't be sold without PC. Drop me a call ;-)
