Computer restarts continuously after having the old hard drive
i have my old hard drive trying to work with another computer. When i took my hard drive out of my old computer and put it to another computer it gets to the loading bar of Windows XP. Then eventually after a few seconds when it should continue to start up, a blue screen shows and the computer restarts. The second time i tried, the same thing happened. So i tested the other hard drive and it works.
Does reformatting the hard drive will help to work with the other computer?
Any help would be appreciated.

If you take your boot drive and install it on a different pc with a different hardware you have to reinstall windows.
You can't expect a hard drive with drivers for hardware from a different computer to boot up another computer with different hardware.
