I have an HP Mini with a 1TB hard drive and Windows 7 and all my programmes, and I am struggling with the small screen. I also have a Dell E6400 which I stopped using. I have installed my HP Mini drive into the Dell but it isn't seeing the OS so it won't boot. It goes through a diagnostic test and then gives me a blue screen. Any thoughts? Many thanks, Steve

you cant just pull a drive out of one system and put it in another you will have to format and reinstall os.
