Windows Fails to Boot after Norton Ghost recovery (autochk not found)
I recently backed up my Hitachi drive which developed bad sectors and then restored it to a same size Seagate one. The operation was done through Norton Ghost. Both backup and restore operations completed successfully, however, when I tried to boot up with the new drive, Windows 7 failed to boot with the message
autochk not found - skipping AUTOCHECK
and rebooting afterwards.
Can't boot into Safe Mode either.
1. There are two partitions, one is marked as 07 and the other is 27 (VAIO recovery). No hidden partitions.
2. The recovery console says Bad Driver (A recent driver installation may have caused a problem), because I believe the driver for previous hard drive was different (this one is actually a Seagate Momentus XT, so it must have some different driver). Yes, I ran it three times. By the way, recovery runs from the same hard disk.
Guys, any idea how I can get this thing to boot. I really don't want to reinstall tons of programs, even though I can obviously recover all of my docs.

Just ran it with boot logging - it says
Did not load driver \SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\VD_FileDisk.SYS
then, in a couple of lines...
Did not load driver \??\C:\System32\Drivers\cbfs64.sys
then, failed to load NDProxy.sys and finally BTHUSB.sys
then the log ends.
so, I believe the problem is in the hard disk driver. The question is, how do you change the driver 'on the fly', so that Windows 7 recognises it?
