Customer has a Dell Studio desktop that died. Win7 Home 64bit. Tried putting the hard drive (crucial 512gb ssd) into a Dell Optiplex but got blue screen of death. Maybe because Optiplexes are generally Pro versions. Or because this Studio has a Celeron processor.
Can I set up this hard drive as a virtual machine in Optiplex? That way I wouldn't have to reinstall the programs.
The Dell I'd put in on would run Win10 64bit pro with 32GB ram, I5. A loaded machine. Could be either old mbr bios or newer UEFI. It's only be to run the virtual machine.
If it can be done, I'd need a step by step approach for doing it.
