I'm getting the blue screen of death when I try and move my old Hard drive of 250 GB from one computer to anther, I tryed running win 2000 repair but still nothing. this is a new computer and all devices working fine. I need the info on the computer and a clean install is not an option.

I have one 250 Gb hard drive set to master or (0) that came from anther computer so the setup info is diffrent. the blue screen is, if you have installed any new hardware remove it and run chkdsk/f to fix any problems if this is the firs time you have seen this message restart computer.

I hope this helps a bit, since i'm stumpt

what is the stop error code on the bluescreen?  Did you trying running a chkdsk/r like the bluescreen suggested?  The error isn't perhaps "inaccessible boot device" is it?
