Help!

Using Norton Ghost, I copied the contents of one drive to my new, larger
one. The new copy drive boots but as I said, I log in, and it will say
"LOADING PERSONAL SETTINGS", then "SAVING YOUR SETTINGS" and
goes back to login prompt. It only does this on the new drive. The old one
still works just fine.

Suggestions? I can't get to the desktop at all, even via Safe Mode.

ok...let me ask you this
can you access the computer remotely through rdp?
if not, can you access it remotely through computer management?
would be interested to see what is showing in the event log; must be
something there that explains what is happening

I don't have the ability to remote manage this machine. Things are OK right
now it is just the fact I can install this new, larger hard drive with the
exact image of my old one using Ghost.

I assume you meant to say "...it is just the fact that I
CANNOT copy my old WinXP installation to my new
hard drive and maintain its exact functionality when I
do the copying using Ghost 9.0 ."

What happens is that the clone doesn't open the user's
Desktop as the original OS did, but instead logs into
the default user's account and then immediately and
automatically logs back out. Is that what you meant? :-)

I've just been struck by this exact same problem - posting incase anyone else is. It seems to be to do with the MBR if you don't do the ghost properly. Rather than reghosting I booted from a Win98 bootdisk and ran the command:
fdisk /mbr
This puts a clean new mbr on the disk, the system then booted and logged in fine :)

Popylon :

Easy just get the bootable floppy of dos ver 5.0 or 6.0 or 7.0 with fdisk on it.

boot the system from floppy

at the prompt type fdisk /MBR

enjoy
