Help with a Toshiba Portege 4010

I'm having the following problem with a Toshiba Portege 4010 System Unit.
When it is powered on it goes to the Toshiba boot screen before trying to boot off the hard drive. Once it attempts to boot from the hard drive, a blank screen with a little flashing underscore appears.

It appears that it is failing to boot, but i do not understand why. The hard drive was built with Windows XP Pro and other software off another identical Portege unit before being removed and placed into this unit.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and what the diagnosis is?

Thanks.
