Unhappy Norton Ghost

Having recently bought Norton Ghost I have - following their distructions - tried to copy one hard drive to a second hard drive. Having apparently done so successfully and having changed the slave to the primary drive and removed the original primary drive I expected (believed) it would boot up as if it was the original drive. If you see what I mean. But it only gets as far as the Windows pale blue screen and logo and stops.

Anyone tried this and can tell me where i am going wrong please?

Both HD's are identical.

Any help appreciated.

Exactly. Get knoppix.. its a live version of linux. You can use that, to download whatever you need, and burn it to a cd. And then.. Well im not sure how to get it to the harddrive
