    I agree you need to do a fresh install. If you have files on the old drive you want to save attach it as a slave and add a new drive as you boot drive. Don't attach the old drive until you have Windows installed and all the drivers loaded and updates done on the new drive.
  5. Due to driver differences and conflicts you should do a clean install.
