I have just purchased a 400 GB USB hard drive. I have "ghosted" my Drive E containing Vista using "Acronis True Image", and I am tring to boot from this external drive. I have reconfigured the BIOS to boot from this first, but it does not work. I get "NTLDR is missing".
Do I also need to make the USB drive the Master?? If so I cannot as there is no facility that I can see to enable me to do that.
Incidentally, I am a "sort of" beginner at this kind of thing . .
