    as many, upgraded to Momentus XT 750GB.
    cloned OSX partition no problem.

    started bootcamp assistant to split the drive, then restarted back into OSX and cloned the W7 bootcamp NTFS partition from the old drive to the new partition on new drive.

    * have Parallels NTFS for MAC so i can R/W

    however in the properties, the new BOOTCAMP clone is not bootable.
    Is there a way to flag it as bootable ?

    the information that is display in Disk Utility in OS X for Windows (BOOTCAMP) partition that says "Bootable: NO" is wrong/incorrect.

    Question is can you actually boot into your Window clone?

    why would that be incorrect ?
    NO, cannot boot. holding ALT key at start shows only OSX partition.

    I have a window Partition as well that I can boot into. The information in Disk utility regarding bootcamp never said "yes" it was "bootable". Don't think you can clone windows successfully anyway. You would have reinstall windows.
