Help with Windows 7
I've just spent most of the day upgrading/building my pc, and everything seems to be working. I was told by a friend that if I used my hard drive from my previous computer, which had windows 7 installed on it when I bought it, I would be able to use that same windows on the new computer. When I go to launch my new computer, the motherboard screen comes up, then proceeds to the windows screen. After a few seconds of saying "Starting Windows," it will flash a blue screen (too fast for me to read what's on it), and will revert back to the motherboard screen (the screen where I could open the BIOS).
My question is: is there any possible way for me to use my old windows installment and not having to go out and buy a new windows disc?
My old computer was an HP something or other.
The upgrades I have just put into this one are a new processor, mobo, and case.
