okay i have ran into a bit of a predicament here, i have two identical laptops both sony vaio e series. but one with winodows 7 ios and another with windows 8 ios. i want to take the hard drive of one and install it on the other, but when i place the hard drive of the windows 7 laptop and place it inside the window 8 laptop i get an ios not found error. i have tried to enter the bios but every F# key i press does not work it just repeats the error D: i now realise that the problem has to do with the bios since the drive is perfectly functionly when placed inside the original laptop. but i do not know how to get into the bios or what to do from their. maybe run a smart check? but isn't that for hard drive corruption?
