Redetecting hardware in Windows 7

I have an old XP machine running some fairly complicated applications that we want to avoid reinstalling and reconfiguring again, but need to upgrade the OS and PC.  So I Ghosted (Symantec) the XP box to a testing box, and did an in-place upgrade to Vista, and then another upgrade to Win 7, which was successful.  I then removed all non-system drivers (audio, nic, display, etc) before shutting down, and took a Ghost image of that, which was then applied to the new machine it is meant to run on.  The problem is there's atleast one driver that is causing the new machine to continuously reboot, and I don't know what it is.  The Win 7 Startup Repair fails in correcting the issue.  Is there a way to force FULL re-detection of all the hardware on the machine so it gets past the driver issue?

Thanks

This sounds like the MBR or BCD on the windows 7 machine are corrupt

Know what - I just figured it out.  It was the BIOS setting for the drive on the new machi9ne.  needed to be changed under the SATA setting.  It's working now.  Thanks for your time, and I'll give you the points.
