I have this computer that is running Windows 2000 on a network. It's an IBM M Pro computer with a scsi drive. I just bought an 80 GB Western Digital IDE Hard Drive to replace it. I mirrored from the scsi hard drive to the new one using Norton Ghost. When I boot from the IDE drive, it will take me to the log in screen, but when I log in it will show the wallpaper then go back to the log in window. I don't think it's connecting to the network or it's missing drivers. I installed the scsi drive back in and it boots fine along with the mirrored IDE drive, but I just want to use the IDE drive. Does anyone know why the IDE drive is not booting all the way through? Any help would be appreciated.

If you have your W2k disk, boot to the REPAIR CONSOLE and preform a repair.
