cant boot to restored hard drive

  serpoid 17:24 27 Apr 2007

I had early warning of an impending hard drive failure, so i created an image of the entire drive including OS and copied it to a new hard drive, the drive is part of a dual boot setup both win xp. The new drive has the same drive letters etc, the boot screen shows it and i can select it, but the booting processs stalls at the welcome screen.
I have tried using recovery console to repair the boot record but nothig seams to work.
the image was made with Acronis true image BTW.
Any ideas gratefully accepted.

Cheers in advance
