Norton Ghost Cloned Drive Won't  Allow Login

This is similar to Maggot's question but none of the answers there helped.  I am trying to use a 13 Gig WD drive as the clone (Master on IDE_1) to copy a 10 G WD drive (Master on IDE_0).  (I tried using the WD cloning software, withthe same results.)  Using Norton Ghost.  If I leave the two drives where they are the 13Gig will boot and let me log in but IIS does not work , nor do some other things like User Accounts.  If I remove the 10Gig drive and put the 13Gig drive on IDE_0 , I get the error " 0x80090006 something is preventing windows from verifying the license"  I can't use the recovery console because the admin password i normally use to log in won't work either.

How can I clone an XP drive and have it work?

What version of Ghost are you using?  Is this an NTFS partition you are trying to copy.

FAT.  I figured it out, sorry to bother you. I had to leave the clone drive connected as it was, change the bios to make it boot first, go into the registry and reassign the original C: to Z: and then reassign the clone drive letter to from D to C  (and Z: to D:), then remove the original drive and reboot with the new C:
