  1. If you are trying to use this drive as a Primary boot drive with the OS on it. its just not gonna happen. Your gonna have to Re-install windows. We all have to do it, Unless your some kind of boot leg copy person...... Some people have been able to do the windows repair and get into windows but eh. i like doing it the clean and legal way
  2. student discount works when you buying an windows 7 os i heard?

    If both systems had similar chipsets, you might be able to reuse the drive without too many problems.

    You have incompatible chipsets, one Intel and one AMD.

    You will need to reinstall.

    Yes, you should be able to use a student discount.
