    You do not install an OS on one computer, then put it in another computer and expect it to work.
  2. Because the master boot files are on win 7 drive thats why win xp is unable to load. Try to recover win xp other wise you should connect win 7 hard drive to recover your files.
  3. windows 7 works fine in the other computer
    windows xp also works fine but prior to the boot theres another menu whos defalt is toll back the other option is boot older version of windows i just need to either get rid of that menu or set defalt option to boot older version of windows


    ps the menu only is onscreen for 1 second
