Hey guys. Not sure if this is the right section but here goes.
I just put together a brand new PC. I used the HDD from my old PC in this one, it has Windows 7 32bit installed on it.
Here's my problem: I start up the PC, everything sounds fine, I hear one beep, the BIOS screen pops up. Then, I get to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen. If I select start windows normally, I see the starting windows screen, then a blue screen pops up with the usual "problem has been detected...shut down to prevent damage" stuff. The technical information it gives me is:
So I restart again, back to the error recovery screen, this time I launch startup repair. Immediately after selecting, a "Windows boot manager" screen is shown displaying "Windows failed to start" and farther below
Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
Things I've tried: I have run repair windows from the installation disc multiple times, and attempted to boot up with only one stick of ram, both without results.
Please help me out!

wipe the drive and reinstall windows. You can't just stick a harddrive in another machine and expect the OS to work.
Yeah, I thought that might be the case. I need to find a way to backup my files first.
