    On a Tecra 530CDT, ghosted an image from the original IBM to a Toshiba 6gb hard drive using Ghost version 5.1c. New hard drive stops responding after the memory test. Re-ghosting using the -fatlimit switch without success - same problem. The old drive was a Win95/WinNT dual boot. Tried updating the bios on the old drive and re-ghosting again without success. Any ideas on what I can try next would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you tried starting the computer with a boot disk? If not, try it. Does the hard drive and it's contents show up when you do. Did you fdisk/format the new drive before ghosting it? Do you get any error messages such as no OS found?
