I had a WindowsXP and Ubuntu 9.04 installed side by side on my single 80GB harddrive. Recently I bought a new 500GB harddrive, cloned Windows partition using Ubuntu's dd, then reinstalled Ubuntu 10.4 on the new disk. New disk is now connected as master, with the old disk as slave. But... I can't boot Windows now at all, neither from old nor from new disk. After choosing Windows in GRUB2, I get a blank text screen with cursor in the home spot.
Windows had 15GB partition at the beginning of the old disk, starting in sector 63. Now I gave it ~17GB (to make sure its filesystem will fit, as I didn't have much time guessing how much exactly the old partition had. The new Windows partition starts in sector 2048.
Both old and new Windows partitions are bit-for-bit identical, checked using
Other than that, I see no obvious differences in setup.
Any ideas how to make it work again? This is a little bit urgent, because my sister badly needs to play The Sims ;-)
