server 2003, I used acronis to make an image of a server drive and then I restored it to a new drive of the same size. All the files and partitions are there but the drive won't boot.

The drive should be specified as the boot drive in the BIOS.  If the image was a partition image as opposed to a drive image, it will be missing the boot sector.
