I am trying to install my primary hard drive from my computer to another (as the primary drive) but it wont boot, not even in
safe mode. It restarts just before the Windows screen.

My computer was a 1.4gh Pentium 4 with an Asus p47 mother board. The new computer is a Dell Dimension 4550  with 2.40 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 with a Dell Board.   My old computer has Win XP SP1 and the new computer has SP2.

My hard drive will only work as the slave, but I really need it to be Primary. Any solutions, thanks.
