Problem ghosting partitions to larger drives in windows 2000 server

I have a serious issue regarding my hard drive space on the current server i Manage.  I have a 40 gb maxtor running on a tc2120 proliant server.  The problem is that the c drive partition is set to 10 gb while the other is set to 30GB.  I have 300MB left on the c partition.  I did the logical thing and bought a 160 GB seagate barracuda drive.  I ghosted the partitions from one drive to the other and increased the size of each partition.  The only problem is that i can't log in to windows because i get a directory service error stating that the specified file cannot be found.  

i attempted to boot into the directory services restore mode, however i cannot get past the stupid ctrl alt del screeen.  everytime i put my password in it acts as if it is going to log me in but all it does is bring me back to the log on screen.  am i ghosting the partitions wrong or is ghost not capable of ghosting win2k server partitions?  

I am not trying to clone to another identical machine.   Ijust want to put new hard drives in so i can increase the size of the partitions without losing any data.  

Please help!!!

Which versions of ghost are you using, if I remeber correctly early versions of  Ghost would only work on a server as a way to restore data at a given point back to a identicle machine, it couldnt be used to migrate data to another drive.

THis may have changed  but check up with ghost documentation.

You may need to restore from tape.
