    I have a dimension 8400 with a partitioned SATA drive. I created an image of the 60 GB active partition, burned the image to a DVD with RecordNow, then used the Acronis Boot CD to install this image on a 40 GB HD with 1 active partition. I can view the files on the 40 GB HD but am unable to boot from it on my dimension 8400 system. Any suggestions to get the 40 GB HD to run as my active (and only) HD on my system.

    Is it listed in the boot list in the BIOS? What happens when it tries to boot?
