Having suffered 3 HDD failures, I have cloned my laptop hard drive (XP
Home edition) with Norton Ghost 9.0. I have copied the MBR as well and
made it active.
Replaced the laptop drive with the cloned drive, but it only boots up to
the XP light blue screen and stalls

Any ideas?

Some ideas:

1. Read your Ghost manual
2. Seek assistance with Ghost problems from Symantec

You dont need 3rd party software to "clone" or mirror youre hd to
another,simply
set youre new drive as slave to the current drive C:.Format the new hd,then
go to run,type:XCOPY C:\*.* D:\ /c/h/e/k/r D: being the new drive,however
if asigned diffrent then substitite the letter.Also,agree to all in the DOS
window.
