    my new hard drive comes in tomorrow and ill be ghosting this one onto it via an external usb enclosure.

    the only time ive ever ghosted a hard drive the ghost went fine but when it booted into windows, the logon screen was blank (meaning no users shown) and i couldn't CTRL+ALT+DEL to get the logon box to pop up.

    can anyone provide a walkthrough to ghost a C: drive onto a drive that will replace it?

    TIA

    Was the other drive unplugged before you booted from your new drive? Did safe mode do the same thing? It sounds like the logical drive letter in Windows got confused.

    In XP, all I've done is ghosted the entire drive to my new drive, and assuming my hardware configuration was the same (except for the drive), it worked fine. If you leave the old drive in the machine, you'll run into problems with Windows assigning it a new logical drive letter.
