Please clarify what you mean as in have you put the Compaq HDD in the Dell for example.
I am trying to upgrade from a compaq to a dell but the dell will not boot from the hhd. the dell is an optiplex gx 270

This is to be expected as there are no drivers for the Dell on the HDD, also be aware that drivers need to be installed in the correct order or you will get problems and particularly with Dell PCs, see the attached link; http://support.dell....4&isLegacy=true
I put the hhd in the dell it will not boot it doesn't recognize the drive
Can you get into the BIOS to see if the HDD is even detected? You will also need to do this to change the boot order so that you can boot from the CD drive first.

Edit: Sorry only just noticed that there was bad language @ the second link so I have removed it.
