windows XP partial start

#1
I installed Win 8.1 on first partition and loaded an image of my old XP installation on second partition. When I boot XP it proceeds to the blue screen displaying Windows XP but does not proceed further. I did an F8 and chose "safe mode" but it still does not go past the blue screen.

Thanks. This may be the answer. When I created the image with Ghost, I told it to "retain signatures." I will try recreating the image without the signatures.
