I'm migrating my machines from XP to Win 7. My first machine XP Pro > Vista Business > Win 7 on drive 'C'. Win 7 no problems. I added a new drive, 'D'. Ghost15 > Copy My Hard Drive from 'C' to 'D'. When completed, I rebooted my 'C' and no problem. I removed the destination drive 'D', and booted. 'C' would not boot and got 'Missing a device'. Put 'D' back on and 'C' booted correctly. 'C' will not boot without the destination drive 'D also attached. Then I took 'C' off and put the destination drive 'D' as 'C' and it would not boot saying 'Copy of Windows is not Genuine'.
I did these exact steps 2 times with exactly the same results. Any suggestions...

Sounds complex. Sorry, but I 'need to know a lot about your system.
Please avoid using drive letters to identify your HDs. It makes it confusing. Let's call the HDs "old" and "new". If there are partitions on the old HD we can call them old1, old2, etc.
Are there partitions on the old HD, apart from Win7? Do you have a SRP?
What sizes are the HDs?
Have you done the SP1 update on Ghost 15?
Did you have a partition on the new HD prior to using Copy Drive? I guess so and this partition was assigned D: drive letter by Win7. Is that correct?
I assume it's a desktop computer and both HDs were internal?
