did you format the hard drive after putting it into new system? if not chances are you got an OEM win7 and the license is now void

You need to do a clean install with a formatted or new hdd.

The hard drive still has the drivers installed for your old motherboard, so the old Windows installation is not compatible with the new motherboard. a clean installation will correct that problem.
