I have a dual boot between WinXP and Windows 7.
Windows XP is on a 80gb 2.5in SATA drive on a 30gb partition, the rest is storage for image backups of new installs.
Windows 7 is on a 40gb IDE drive that may or not be dying, Im not sure. Having intermittent issues with it. I have a 120gb IDE drive that Ive tried using Acronis true image to clone the drive over from the 40gb to the 120gb IDE.

But after taking out the 40gb and putting the 120gb in its place, the boot menu comes up and when I try to goto Windows 7, it says
"Windows failed to boot, please insert your Win7 disc and repair."

Windows Xp still works fine...
Ive tried it also with an 80gb IDE drive.

This is what my boot.ini looks like:
;
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT

Will booting off the disc and hitting repair help?
Wondering if there was another option as I dont have my USB dvd-R with me...

After getting my USB Dvd-R back and booting off the disc, repairing the cloned install did make the new drive work.

Saweet! No more crammed 40gb..
