That would be the mass storage driver not loading.
To what make/model of PC are you moving the hard drive to?

Any time I've ever seen the 7b was as a result of hard drives failing.

I would suggest downloading the cd image of Hitachi DFT from here http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm

and test the drive. It does not need to be a Hitachi drive by the way. It will still test it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It would still be worth spending a few minutes checking it.

Other possibility is SATA drivers. Are they the same on both machines?

Go into the BIOS on the old PC (F2 key) and check the mode for the hard drive.  If it's set to ATA mode, make sure the same is set on the new computer.  If AHCI, the same.

Have you been able to verify the BIOS settings as suggested by aleinss above?

where do I find that in the bios?

Mike_CarrollCommented:
Under Hard Drives from memory. A lot of the Dells are set to AHCI by default which can cause problems reading the drives. You really need to be sure that it is set to the same setting as the previous machine... or if in doubt, try setting it to ATA and see what happens. Chances are with a new Vostro its set to AHCI.
