Moved Windows XP partition to new drive - won't boot
I've got an XP program that will not install on VirtualBox, so I have to keep an actual XP install for the rare times I need to use it. Originally, that was on its own 80GB disk, but I had to swap that out for a new 3TB drive. I copied the partition using "dd", and then copied it to an 80GB partition on the new drive. I set the boot flag. Both the new and old partitions are NTFS. When I try to boot XP, I get the following messages.
error no such device: <lists the correct guid>
error no such partition
Press any key to continue ...
The one thing I see that's probably the problem is that the old partition table was "msdos" type, while the new drive's partition table is type "gpt". Help.
