Default Ghost 2003 Cloned Partition not booting

I had a 150G HDD C: & bought a 450G HDD, I partitioned the 450G to 150G & 300G, D: & E: respectively
Using Ghost 2003 I Cloned partition C: to D:
No problem until I removed Drive C: & Installed D: as the boot device
"Disk Boot Failure, Insert system disk & Press Enter"

If I connect D: as a Slave all the data as C: is there

how can I get it to boot ?

Thanks for all help

IT is because Windows when it was isntalled was on the C: drive. Now you put it on the D: Drive and it shows a error when trying to boot. You have to use the disc and fixboot and fixmbr to try and recover the boot info.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
