Yo will most likely have to reinstall all your software. Hopefully none of them are 16 bit programs or use 16 bit installers as 16 bit programs do not run in windows 64 bit.

If the hard drive is still good (don't know what caused your old system to crash) then you can just install it in the new system as a secondary drive and copy all the pictures off of it. If this is a laptop, you will need to put your old drive in an external enclosure, then copy the pictures off of it.
