Hello,
I inherited a gaming computer with a dual 74G set up as RAID boot? I also has a 1TB hdd. My computers are XP, and I have many file etc that I need access to, but wanted to use the more pwerful new computer. I installed my XP hdd w/xp into the new computer and tried to boot with the new hard disc as boot up. The computer failed on startup. I can not load XP nor can I start Win 7. I took out the new hdd and tried starting w/win 7 disc. I go into a continuous loop of repair menu. Is this a bios problem now? Any help out there+

You can't just take a system drive out of one computer and swap it into another. As you've found out it doesn't work without doing a repair installation of the OS. If you have files you need to access then put the drive in an enclosure and attach it as an external.
