Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem.
Okay. So I got a brand new PC which I assembled. But I did not have the cable to connect the DVD to the HDD. As a result, my DVD player was useless. And, so I could not boot up my computer with Windows 7 or install any drivers that came along with it.
For which reason, I came up with the bright idea (now I'm really questioning that) of replacing my new Hard Drive with the older comp's Hard Drive just so I could install Windows 7 on it. Which I successfully did! Happy, that I would now be able to do without
a DVD player, I proceeded to put the original older Hard Drive (With Vista on it) on the older comp. And, put the newer HDD in the new PC. But now, Windows 7 won't boot and I get the error message, after several seconds of trying to diagnose the problem. (This,
here is the root cause : Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem.)
I read up on another thread that (quote : http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/250347-32-transferring-hard-drive-computer) that Windows running on a newer machine will detect the new hardware and assume I have made an illegal second installation of this licensed
software. And, so.. I'm guessing, refuse to boot?
To fix this I'm supposed to contact support. Which I did. But they could not help me and I was directed here instead. While in that thread, the guy is trying to use the HDD from his older PC, I'm just trying to make-do without a DVD. And attempting to run Win
7 which I installed using my older comp's DVD on my new computer. Is there any fix to this? Please help!
