Thanks for the tip, the hdd bootes ok with a little help from the boot 
disk in the very start. I'd have came that far that something make my 
new hard drive unable to boot from. The bootloader is good, cause a 
friend of mine have made an successful installation with the use of a cd 
burned with the same image file. The hard drive is made active, I'd 
checked with mbrlabel.

However mbrlabel also told me "boot selector disabled" ( or something 
like that ), do somebody know what that means?
