I just replaced my MacbookPro's hard drive with a new 500gb, and used Disc Utility to mirror the OS X portion of old one onto the new one. Now how do I copy my VMWare partition of Windows over? thanks

Is your VMWare install using a Boot Camp partition?

If so, you should just be able to use Winclone to make an image of the old one and restore it to the new drive.

Otherwise, it should alsready have copied over as part of your OS X partition.

Ever since SL Winclone has not worked for me. Hopefully they'll get it fixed. I really loved the easy migration winclone provided.

Cheers,

It was not in a Bootcamp partition. I still have my 'Virtual Machines' folder in Documents, but VMware will not load windows. It says "File not found: Windows XP Professional--s002.vmdk". What should I do? thanks

Have you looked for a file of that name using spotlight or looked to see if a tool like Disk Inventory X/Daisy Disk/OmniDiskSweeper would reveal a large file hanging out there that would be your disk image.

My guess is that the volume label changed when you moved to the new drive and something is looking for /Volumes/OldName/Pathname instead of /Volumes/NewName/PathName.

It's just a guess...
