When Windows is installed on to a computer it generates a unique number.
This number is based on the hardware of the computer, as well as Windows itself.
When you change the hardware, Windows will not boot.
Changing the hardware would include; putting a different motherboard in, putting the hard drive in a different computer, or even making drastic changes to other hardware.
You can boot from a USB drive if the BIOS is set properly. In your case Windows is seeing a different hardware setup and will not boot.
