I'd check your hardware. If it is an IDE HD, are the jumpers correct? If it is SATA, is it plugged into the same SATA port on the motherboard as the failed HD was using?
If your hardware is set up OK, repeat the restore into the current partition and choose...
Verify recovery point before restore

Hey guys,I fixed it! When Brian_K suggested whether I verified the Recovery Point I realized that the system didn’t give me that option. Then I re-read the sequence from AllenM’s post one more time and I found that I missed one important step:
When you boot from the Symantec Recovery CD (SRD), select "Recover my Computer" and then select the appropriate image to restore. Note that you need to select "Filename" from the drop down menu and NOT "Date". If you select "Date" the options below will probably not be presented. When you select FileName your recovery points will probably not be visible so simply hit "Browse" and browse to your recovery point file and select the appropriate image.
Then select the target drive to restore your image to (your new HD) and click "Next".
Check the following options: Verify recovery point before restore - optional and takes longer if checked but a good precaution.
Check for file system errors after recovery - again optional
Resize restored drive - not optional if you want to have the extra HD space available to you after the restore.
Partition type - primary.
Set drive active for booting
Restore original disk signature - see also Chapter 14 in Ghost user guide.Restore MBR - many times optional but should be checked to ensure the MBR is correct. Likely mandatory in Vista.
