Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) 0x0000007B (OxF78AD528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x0000000000)


Im getting this Stop Code after moving an old hard drive to a new system as a primary drive. I cant get into safe mode. For some reason when i set the hard drive jumpers to Cable Select I get the BSOD. When I set it to Master or Slave it wont detect the hard drive at all. I reset the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS and Im still getting the same symptoms. 


Any Suggestions?

You generally can't transfer the Windows installation from one computer into a different system, the hardware is different and usually results in BSODs. (Plus of course, if the Windows on the transferred drive has an OEM license, that license is only valid for the original computer it belongs to.)


If the Windows being moved is a full retail license, it may be successful to use the Windows CD to do a repair install, and re-activate if necessary (it probably will be, due to the complete hardware change) but a clean install would probably be more stable.
