Exclamation Help Me!!!!!!!!!!

Okay I took my HDD to have windows installed on it by a friend, when I returned home with my HDD and boot the PC I kept getting the troubleshooting screen and windows wouldn't load. Why is that?

Because Windows wasnt loaded with your hardware profile. Which means it wasnt loaded with your hardware. So you will have trouble. You will have to use the Windows disc and do a repair install to fix this.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

Unless your friend has the identical motherboard to yours, its going to have the wrong drivers and not boot. Just boot from the windows cd and choose to repair the installation.
Nothing to see here.
