Hi all,

 

  I have this hard drive that has the OS on it, and it is blue screening and returning to boot options menu. it is running off a custom gigabyte socket 775  main board via sata cable. i hooked it up into another computer and it appears to be a fine disk, albeit partitioned. does that mean that the OS is licensed for another board only?  i have the speccy and SIW screen shots of it if that helps.

 

 is there a BIOS setting that is preventing it from loading?

 

 while i had it hooked up to the other computer, i did a chkdsk /r on it and it said it needed to be dismounted..

each computer that has windows installed on it will assign a activation key to each system, if the windows os is on a different machine it de-activates windows and makes the user either buy a new key/ or give them a 30-day trial...so try to keep the the hardware on the original machine.

 

hope that works
