    To be fair…. XML is not a drive clone program.. it’s a backup program. It’s not designed to build a bootable clone of a primary drive or partition.

    I don’t think you can boot on a drive that has an image created by DriveImage XML … without some manual steps to build the bootmanager files/store. Acronis True Image does work perfectly however.. and there is a free version on the WD website if at least one of your drives is a WD or Segate.

    If you simply copy your bcd file to a new hard drive and try to boot to it… it will seek your primary drive that it was copied from because the quid numbers specify that particular drive. XML does not correct this.. True Image does.
