    I replaced my old drive with a new one as follows
    old ---> slave
    new ---> master
    load xp onto master
    used western digital utility to copy entire drive data from old to master
    started up system -- everything okay

    (day later)

    rejumpered master to be sole drive
    disconnected slave

    restarted system --
    new config found okay
    windows xp banner screen, then
    launched in another Windows Xp banner screen
    stuck!
    Everone once-in-a-while, I hear the click of a disk movemnt, but basically stuck.

    i powered down and up again, ---same state was reached.

    Any ideas?

    Try switching the jumper on the master HD to the old position (i'm assuming that you're using cable select at the moment?... If so, just switch it to master)
