vista not starting

  no way 19:23 06 Apr 2009

i recently upgraded my pc new mobo cpu hdd and made my old hdd slave, i done a fresh install of vista keeping the old one as backup (until i move all the old stuff over)ti has been working fine until last week the old one will not load, it gets past the post, the vista loading bar then turns black with the cursor (all normal)then just stays like that. i can move the cursor around k/board does nothing and if i reset and boot from the new install i can access the slave drive all files still there,,, strange, any ideas?

The old Vista will not load on a new motherboard as it still has all the old chipset drivers etc so sees a conflict.
