New Comp.

By thenkle ·
I just got a "new" computer and I started it up. It worked fine but when I tried to replace the hard drive with my old one it gets past the bios/motherboard page then restarts itself. I tryed putting the other HD back in but it did the same thing. Any Suggestions?

Windows move

by p.j.hutchison In reply to New Comp.

Windows does not like moving between computers. Normally you should run Setupmgr and then Sysprep (found in deploy.cab on XP CD) to remove the hardware information, SID info and so on so it can be used on a different PC.

BTW, Window is licensed for one computer so you might not be able to activate it on the new computer, you will have to telephone MS!
