Replacing SCSI boot disk with IDE


G

Guest

I Gateway 6400 server with Windows 2k server & Active Directory installed on a 2 gig partition of a 9 gig SCSI drive. I want to image the drive to a 10 gig partiton of an 80 gig IDE drive. I can Ghost the image no problem, but when I try to boot to the IDE drive I get an error of No OS. I Fdisk /mbr to reset the Master Boot Record but still no IDE boot. I was told that when the OS is installed on a SCSI drive it remembers that controller and cannot be switched to IDE. Is this true? Or can I change someting manually?

Boot from the CD, run the recovery console, and run fixmbr and fixboot to
set up the boot sector.

What does your boot.ini look like?
