Windows rarely can move from machine to machine. And furthermore the Dell OEM Windows license dies when remove it from your Dell. This can upset those that think they bought the OS.
Hello folks, I'm having a technical issue that maybe someone here can help me with. I just built a new box and decided to take the HD and the optical drives out of the old one and use them. It starts up, but windows won't boot up, I'm getting an error as follows.
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.
Check for viruses on your computer, remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run chkdsk/ f to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart the computer.

I took the HD out of this new build and put it back in the computer it came out of and it boots up fine. I am wondering if it has something to do with the old one being a dell.
