I cloned my hard drive with Norton Ghost 2003 and everything seemed to go OK untill I tried booting to the drive. It started to open, it did the black screen with the Windows logo and blue bar going across and back and then it proceded to the two color blue screen with the XP logo and it would not go any further. I believe I used Ghost once before successfully with XP, but that was before service 1 and 2, I wonder if the SP's make a difference and is there a fix. Or, can someone suggest a program to clone a drive that will work with XP.

Usually the MBR (Master Boot Record) is saved seprately from the image. Atleast when I did it. If you don't have a Master Boot Record your computer will not kow what the parameters areto boot your drive. Check Ghost and see if they have the option to image the MBR.
