Hi Everyone! This is my 1st post here. Did a search on computer help and heard great things about this forum.
My fiance's old dell was on it's last leg and she had a very important program on it for her home based business (medical billing). This program could not be re-installed without paying an arm and a leg. So I cloned the Hard Drive which had Vista Ultimate SP2 (64 bit) on it to a bigger 1 terabyte drive and bought her a newer refurbished HP system. I then took out the HD in the new system which had Windows 7 (32 bit) on it and installed the cloned drive and no boot.. but does boot in the old machine so the clone was successful. I was able to get into the Bios on the new machine and change some settings and now I can at least get to the Vista Splash screen to enter her password but have no use of the keyboard & mouse? Strange. The keyboard does work in the bios but not when Vista starts and get's to the Splash screen. There is no settings in the bios for usb, legacy,ect. So basically.. the MB on the new computer is not playing well with this cloned version of Vista. Tried all the usb inputs so it's not a usb 2..3 thing. And again the keyboard works fine in the bios. Is this a driver issue? Why is this mother board not communicating with this cloned Vista? Do I need to install some driver in Vista?
Thank you so much for any advice!
