    Old drive IDE, MOBO expecting Sata ? - Look in bios to see how it is configured.
  2. You can't transplant a hard drive into a new system and expect it to work. The operating system has the wrong drivers installed for the new hardware. You might be able to fix it with a repair install, but a clean install is highly recommended.
