Hi, I have an 80gb IDE drive with two partitions (not equal size), both contain Windows XP, both primary and the first one active. The first partition has the ntldr and boot.ini on it and both partitions can boot fine. I took images of each one (separately) and each image restores correctly. I have now replaced that drive with another 80gb one, I have restored the partitions individually. The first one boots fine and works as normal, however, the second partition starts too boot with the black Windows XP screen with progress bar, it enables the usb devices, I then get the blue Windows welcome screen, with the Windows XP logo on and dark blue bars top and bottom, the mouse cursor appears and can be moved with the mouse, but then it just sits there, no drive activity or anything!?! I *think* I set the partitions to be the same size as on the original drives, but the drives are different models, same manufacturer and size though. Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?
