I built my boy a new computer, using all new parts except for the hard drives. 2 hard drives have xp on it, and one has vista on it. I jumpered one of the xp hard drives in and it blue screened with the above blue screen. Tried another xp drive, and it blue screened. The vista hard drive just rebooted itself, and when trying to install vista on any of them, the install freezes on the initial screen. I have checked the jumper settings and everything and I can't figure out how to fix this. Help?

Adding a hard drive with the OS from another machine is nearly impossible

But I was trying to install vista on a hard drive/motherboard combo that the install hasn't been registered. Wouldn't I be able to do a clean oem install on that hard drive?

Is this a retail version of Vista with the product code?

You had mentioned that these hdds had come out of other machines, were the hdds working at the time that they were removed?

Have you tried using a utility like Active Kill Disk to wipe the drive first, this will give you a fresh hdd to work with.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
