After restoring a ghost image, Computer boots to "A Disk Read Error Occured" Press CTRL-AlT-Del to restart. It runs Windows XP, its a Lenovo Thinkpad with a SATA drive (also in AHCI):

This is what happened. I took out the 160GB SATA from the laptop, and put it in an USB enclosure and created an image in Ghost 11 that is saved to a desktop computer, then. I restored the image to a 80GB SATA drive with a USB enclosure. I pop in that 80GB drive to the laptop and that message of "A Disk Read Error Occured" shows up.

There is only one partition.

I tried the following already:
fixboot
fixmbr
Chkdsk /r (all clean)

By the way, if I put it in an enclosure, it is accessible and does read data as normal. What can I do to fix it?
Please don't ask me to reformat, I want the laptop to use that image.

The difference in drive sizes (Larger to smaller) may be the problem. I haven't used Ghost in a while, but I had a similar thing happen to me. Let me dust off my memory and dig.

Thanks for the Link! I tried the suggested solution and it worked! I cant believe Ghost is so picky.
