    I have succesfully deployed a Ghost image to my Virtual PC profile.
    The issue I have is that when I try to boot the OS I am either getting
    hanging on the Windows XP bootup screen or when I try to disable all the
    network, audio, etc devices it blue screens.

    The image is definitely on the VPC drive but I am yet to boot completely to
    Windows. I have booted with the Windows XP CD and gone into Recovery mode,
    extracted the hal.dll and ntoskrnl and replaced then but no go.

    Any assistance would be most welcome!

    You'll probably have to do a repair/install/upgrade instead of a simple
    repair to get the drivers it needs installed.

    Go past the first repair/install screen, selecting install, then it should
    notice the current install there and ask if you want to repair it, do so.
    It's basically an in-place upgrade this way...
