I am having a problem getting an Ghost Imaged drive to boot.
I have created a base image for my HP NX9420 Laptop with Windows XP Pro SP2. Normally this machine 2 partitions, a D partition which is the HP_Recovery, and a C partition which is the boot partition for Windows. I used the HP delete partition wizard to blow away the D partition so now i'm just left with the C partition. I also ran sysprep before imaging the drive.
I created an Image of this drive using Ghost v. 8. I imaged it two ways, i imaged the drive and i also imaged the partition.
I then pushed out this image to a new hard drive by using Image to Disk and also Partition to Disk.
When i try booting up the original disk it works just fine. Both in the original machine and in another but same machine.
When i try booting up the new drive all i get after the bios splash screen is a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner. This happens on the new machine and on the original machine.
I assume this has something to do with the machine not being able to find the boot partition or something along those lines but i can't figure out why.
If anyone could help me out with this i would greatly appreciate it. I have been struggling with this problem for sometime now and would like to get it resolved once and for all.
