If you want to know if you can put Windows 7 on a HD while it's in a computer & then transfer it to a new computer without reinstalling the answer is probably not.
With XP & below that would work sometimes.
With Vista & 7 I have never heard of anybody transplanting a HD with the OS with success.
You have to keep in mind when you install Windows all of the drivers & componenys are installed in the registry.
When you move a HD to a unit with a totally different motherboard nothing matches up .
