I have a client that the laptop does not start, the computer had a mother board problem so we decided the best thing to do is to buy a new laptop.

I was able to recver most of the data using an external docking station.

I conected the drive to a desktop computer and tried to load the windows 7 of the drive but a fast BOD comes and goes.

My question is:

What do i have to do to be able to load using that drive as primary. Because I know I can access the information but without been able to load the programs from that drive.

thanks

Nothing that I am aware of...if the drive won't boot. The only way that I'm aware of to run programs installed on any version of Windows...is to boot into that version.
