    I installed XP on a smal drive a few weeks ago thinking I could always clone it to a larger drive...

    Guess what?!? WPA do'nt like that one bit... I am now locked completely out of the system... Not even Safe mode works... I used Ghost7.5 and copied from partition to partition...

    Is there anything I can do besides putting in the small drive or reinstalling?!? I have less than 300megs left on the small drive...

    Your gonna have to re-install :( cloning the drive doesn't work sometimes. It has something to do with wpa.dbl doing a hardware check and it can see it's on a different drive..this si just speculation but it's what i've seen from my experiences so far...but I still might be wrong :p
