Long story short:
Laptop went bad.
Bought an external enclosure and a new desktop PC.
Using HDD as an external.
New PC Windows 7 is currently not activated.
Since the old HDD has an active Windows 7 installed on it, which I no longer need, I would like to boot through the old HDD and acquire my product key. I access the BIOS and tell the comp to boot from the HDD, but from what I can tell the HDD doesn't recognize the new components and won't successfully boot.
Any suggestions? Any additional information?
