I was installing a new hard drive.  All things looked good.  The BIOS recognized the WD 80G no problem.

I was in the process of copying my boot drive to my new drive when I went blue screen.  Now when I reboot, I logon to Win2000, it shows the "Loading your personal settings" message and then immediately goes to "Saving your personal settings" and then to the logon screen.

I have tried logging on as several different users, all with the same result.

What happened?  The new drive is not ready for prime time yet and now the old drive won't let me in.

Help.
