Moving old hardrive from a Compaq to new system
Posted on 2004-10-14
My old Maxtor 20G hardrive running windows 2k boots fine on the Compaq Deskpro exm-P933.. However when I install the harddrive on my New Hardware (non Compaq), BIO's finds the Hardrive but after DMI verification Windows 2K does not boot at all... just hangs
Is their a program or file that is looking for the Compaq Mother Board? I dont want to delete the Hardrive becasue it working fine and has my software loaded the way I want.
I have booted this hardware with windows XP harddrive... so I know its not the Hardware...
Does Compaq or did they use to do somthing with the Harddrive?
