Stop Error 0x0000007B on new computer after cloning using Ghost ver 11

We purchased several new Dell identical PC's, configured the computer with Windows XP volume license, all service packs, and applications we utilize.  We used the setup manager wizard to create an inf, then used sysprep with the -reseal -mini options.  The cloning process with ghost went as expected until we tried to boot a new workstation with the image and received the stop error 0x0000007B.  We are running diags on the PC but hope someone could tell us what we are doing wrong!

    You may want to try checking the settings for ATA access. I know there are a few of them AHCI, LegacyATA, etc. Try changing the type of ata that is being used. We ran into this with dell laptops and desktops mainly 755's and the new e6400's

    I just checked the e6400 we have and it is located in the bios under system configuration and then sata operation.

    The options I have listed are

    Im currently running it on ATA.

    This solved our problem!  Thank you!  We went into BIOS on the computer we were pushing the image to and changed it to ATA.  The source PC had been changed to ATA, but the destination computer had not been.

    I want to discuss this further if you guys don't mind. We use HPs here at work and have to set the ATA settings to IDE instead of SATA in order to ghost them. My first question is, can anyone explain to me why this has to be done in order to ghost a machine? And my second question is, does this mean the drive is not running at its full potential because the ATA setting is set to IDE? And my last question is, is there a way around it?
