restore ghost image to partition and set master boot record

My old hard drive died.

I have a new drive where I've set up 3 partitions. One partition is set as the primary active partition. I restored my ghost 2003 image to the partition. I can't boot from the drive. I suspect this has something to do with the master boot record not being present. Can someone walk me through the process of getting the drive to boot?

Try the Ultimate Boot CD. It has tools to repair the MBR. Additionally, paritioning tools (on UBCD) will let you prepare the drive as well.

Have you tried a repair console http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058
To repair the master boot record?
Another alternative could be to perform a repair install.
What error does the system display during boot?
How is the new driver different from the Old Drive i.e. different interface? IDE/SATA?

I agree,

repair console should be your first choice via a bootable XP media if you have it.

Otherwise UBCD or any good MBR utility should work

   
I hope this helps !
