As far as I know the datadir isn't valid in the bitcoin.conf file.  Maybe they added it to a new release?  Usually you have to add it to the command line options, e.g. in your startup folder or just as a separate shortcut that you start yourself.
Seems to have worked in the config file...

Does it always get stuck at the same block?  Do you have the latest Bitcoin-QT?

That's really odd.  Make sure it's using the new directory on the new drive.  (check the block file timestamps in both).  Did you try an older version of bitcoin-qt?  If you really need it working on this particular computer and you don't want to reinstall windows, you could install linux in a virtual box as a kludge.
