I have used DD successfully to image and clone several hard drives running Windows XP Pro and Windows XP Home with no ill effects. I just specify source and target drives and no other parms.

dd if=/dev/source_drive of=/dev/target_drive

I have done this with IDE to SATA, SCSI to SCSI, and SCSI to SATA with no problems at all. Is it possible there was some data corruption when the syste, crashed?
