Am I reading this right? You too a hdd w/ an os from your old pc and put it in another one? And it don't work. You need to completely reformat and install os for it to function correctly.

I have had similar issues. I pulled a 40 gb HDD out of a 1.5 Emachine Running XP. Tried to transfer it to an 1.5 HP and i could not get it to boot to the OS. Tried all the different jumper settings and the pc would not boot. got the same black screen with the ctrl-alt-del message. couldnt figure this out....does anyone know???
