    What error messages are you getting?

    What OS are you using?

    It might be as easy as either remaking the boot sector/boot.ini file or an XP repair. It might also be something more serious.

    here is the error message------error loading operating system (stops during post with this message)

    using windows xp sp2

    if I reformat the cloned drive and plug the old one back in it's just fine....operating system is just effected on the cloned drive, I do a scandsk on the cloned drive and everything checks out okay...I am thinking of just uninstalling version 10 of AI and putting on version 9.

    I think something has happened to the MBR - do you have a floppy drive or the XP CD to hand?
