This is driving me nuts. I cloned my old HD to a new one and all seemed fine...EXCEPT: When I remove my old HD and boot from the new cloned HD, it takes 10 times longer. It hangs on the Bios splash screen, and then it hangs before it starts to boot windows. Once Win2K boots, all is fine! I was thinking it had to do with my MBR, but it seems that the motherboard/bios is still looking for my old HD. In fact, when it is connected, the system boots fine from the new cloned HD, even thought the old HD is not even listed in the boot sequence. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is driving me NUTS!
