Hi help or advise pls would be greatly appreciated

OK swapping / upgrade of HDD for a friend.
Old Celeron 500 on Intel board.

Added a Ram stick, then

copied their 4G old drive (with Drive Image) onto a new 20G Seagate drive. All OK
remove old drive and make new one master OK
system boots and goes into W2K as usual.
system starts loading with the usual b&w screen with progress bar across the bottom - OK
Then - nothing
System restarts the whole boot
Just keeps going around in circles never actually booting or any thing
Drive is recognised and shows the correct size
System counts down the ram memory and so on

I am at a loss!
If i havent given enough detail let me know
Otherwise i would greatly appreciate some advice

Win2k does not like being moved to a different HDD. You basically need to install 2k on that disk for it to work. That or Norton Ghost may work---not sure, since I don't use it.
