Hello,
I imaged a hard drive using norton ghost. From a 180 GB to a 640 GB Western Digital HD model WD6400AAKS.
It was working for awhile today however when I powered on the computer the bios still detects the hard drive, but the hard drive isn't booting up. After the bios detects hard drive screen refreshes and shows a flashing command prompt.

hi,
it may be that the computer is trying to boot from the HDD.
remove it and try to boot again or check the boot sequence from the BIOS menu.
