I have been trying to move my boot partition off of my noisy hard drive onto
a new quiet hard drive. I first tried copying and pasting my whole C: drive
to my brand new SATA hard drive. after rebooting the system it had a hard
time rebooting again. I had to go into bios and reset the right boot
priority. it would not boot to the new SATA hard drive because i did not do
it properly with the proper program. I did not want to delete what was on it
to properly do it. so i wanted to use a smaller PATA HDD and used the Seagate
program that came with the computer. I used a process that would take the
boot off of the old drive and put it onto the transfering drive. well 75%
through the process while it was to "copying" the information the computer
went into screen saver mode while i was away. when i came back to check it
the computer was frozen up but the light on the front was to blinking as
though it were still working. i tried ctr+alt+del many times on it would not
unfreeze. so i held my power button to shut it down. when i tried to reboot
my system it gets to the windows logo and what would normally be the screen
that would let me click on a profile and have it load up is now a log on to
windows, window that has my name instead of my profile filled into a box
requesting a password i do not have set. when i try to log in using no
password it tells me that it's logging out and either freezes or goes back to
the log on screen. it wont let me into my computer. i've tried safe mode and
i get the same thing. Please help i do not want to reinstall windows again
for the 5th time or so, and loose everything. again!

note: I have many other xp computers in my house and the Vista basic laptop
i am using.

You don't say what system you are trying to copy, but the key of a
successful duplication is to have the new drive enumerate the same as the
old one during the first boot.

The advice I gave is even more necessary for XP, either version. The key to
a successful copy is to make sure that the copy is enumerated the same as
the original before it is first booted. Simply, if the current system
enumerates as C, the copy must be on the first primary partition on the
first drive in boot priority in the BIOS. Other configurations can get
complicated.

Idk know if the program performing the operation did that or not. copying was
75% complete before the system froze. windows is showing up but letting me
log in. it acts like its gonna and then it imediately tells me it's logging
off and goes back to the previous screen even use of the "Administrator
account is not working." Is there any way at all to fix what you where
talking about with a 75% copied drive without getting into the OS to do it.
Or will i have to reinstall windows on the drive i intended to copy the boot
to.

Up in the above i meant not letting me log in. when i try to boot from the
incomplete drive it says "windows could not start because the following file
is missing or corrupt:
<Windows root>\system32\hal.dll please reinstall a copy of the above file.

AceViper,

Have you tried running a repair install? Boot from the XP CD, select the
option to repair the installation.

Its the one after the license acceptance, not the repair via the console.
