    bootcamp restore
    i hope im in the right place for this, im new, but i need some help.

    i have a 2.0 ghz aluminum macbook, which had a mac partiton and windows bootcamp partion on it, living happily side by side. then i ran out of room and got a bigger hdd. i pulled out the old hdd and stuck in the new one and used disc utility to copy over my mac partiton (From the old drive in an external case). this was all good, then i did the same for the windows (XP by the way) but it wouldnt boot . all my data is still on the old drive, and reinstaling bootcamp then copying over my files wouldnt work as i have several games with custom mods to think about. so if somebody could tell me how to make my windows partiton bootable you will get a free hug if you pay for shipping

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
