Default HDD Upgrade Troubles - 01-07-2011, 12:06 AM

Hello all!
I recently ordered a WD Scorpio Blue 500GB HDD for my Dell Mini 10v (1011). I also purchased a SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 adapter to clone the drives. I used Carbon Copy Cloner with my new drive and my dell mini's 160GB HDD, and cloned the disk. According to CCC, it was a bootable drive, which proved true, as I hooked the 500GB SATA HDD up to the transfer cable and booted from it. However, when I actually installed the drive today, I ran into some trouble. After installing the new cloned HDD, I received an error message along these lines:
Intel undi PXE-2.1 build 082. This product is covered by one or more of the following patents (blah blah)
PXE-E61: media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF exiting PXE rom

Operating System Not Found
I'm assuming that simply cloning the drive isn't sufficient. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

You need to run NBI on the cloned drive to make it bootable and to install the Chameleon Bootloader.
