    Pull the second drive, put your Win7 DVD in and boot from that, run startup repair and it should fix the problem. You might have too boot from the DVD two or three times before it works, but it should work eventually.

    thanx i actualy gave that a try before i read this and it did work, thank God just before i did the copy something told me in my mind to make a win 7 repair dics wich ive never had, lol so someone was looking out for me there, and it worked, what it looks like is it deleted the master boot sect from original drive, Idont know why it did that? is that common for norton ghost to do that? all i wanted was an exact image of my current drive so i selected to copy mbs and it deleted it off original drive,, oh well this is a good lesson for me in makeing sure i have these repair discs made!! thanx,, your answer was 100% correct
