I grabbed an 80gb hard drive out of my gf's old computer, and I figured I'd use it to replace the 40gb hdd in my R51 ThinkPad. There's no real important info on my old hdd, so I just created some factory recovery discs, put in the new hdd (both are PATA) and ran Rescue and Recovery. After it was finished restoring to the factory state all the new hdd will do is load Rescue and Recovery again. It won't load Windows. Is there something else I have to do?

Shooting from the hip here, but ISTR that some versions of R&R restore the "restore" image to HD, then you reboot to R&R and run a restore there to finish the restore of the rest of the drive.
Like I said, just something I saw elsewhere. Worth a shot, maybe,
