maybe. it's also possible what changed is your disk geometry.
Answer is probably: you have the old partition data so just re-enter it
(apparently your just emulating and i'm unsure your emulator simulates
drive detection or has the same mbr)
(also, make sure you don't have "easy drive" in your mbr)
if this is the first time your machine is getting the "upgrade sata"
expect some flak
do you have a backup ? did you boot the old system to see if it reads it ?
other possibilities: you booted microsoft and microsoft deleted it (i know at least older versions
