    I copied my partitions to a new and larger hdd using dd9. The copying of the partitions went quite well. Unfortunately the system does not boot from the new harddisk.

    The system is a Thinkpad R50. First partition is primary and hosts XP on NTFS. The second partition is primary as well and hosts the IBM recovery system which can be launched by pressing the blue key right after switching on the computer.

    Is there a way to make the system to boot again XP from the first (C:) partition?
