GOT ANY IDEA WHATS GOING ON HERE ? ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APRECIATED
damasvara has given good advice. The HDD probably wont work in your new system. As for the CD drive, leave it out of your new system and see what happens. If it works OK then check the motherboard connections for your CD drive. It's probably an IDE drive and you may have it set on slave from your old PC whereas the jumper on it may need to be changed to master.
As dama said, sounds like you need a fresh installation. A repair install might work though, try booting from your Vista dsik and seeing if it can find any boot problems. not likely but you never know!
