I decided to upgrade my computer from a Dell Optiplex 745 to a dell Optiplex 755. I took the hard drive out of the dell optiplex 745 and installed on the Dell Optiplex 755. When I powered on the Dell Optiplex 755, it boot into BSOD. I decided to do a repair installation. The repair installation error occurred while trying to install components. I have uploaded an image to give you better explanation of the error message.

Happened during Xp Repair installation
ERROR MESSAGE: The exception unknown software exception (Oxc0000409) occurred in the application at location 0x6976ea96

You have changed the hard drive from one system to another...that's not supposed to be done, since the drivers/settings and Windows license for System A...do not necessarily relate at all to System B.

Back in the day this would work for the most part with Windows98, it would just go through the motion of detecting new hardware and eventually boot.

That being said, you can no longer do that as hamluis has stated. The only way its possible is if computer A is exactly the same specs as computer B.

The above posts are correct. You cannot take a hd from one system, put it in another, and expect it to work. You need to format and reinstall.

I have a lot of important programs and file save to that hard drive. I don't think formatting the hard drive is the best solution

Alternatively, you can install a second OS on the drive in the new system and then access the files you need and move them over to the new installation before deleting the older OS install.
