Somebody gave me a scsi tower with no HD in it. The machine beats the [bleep] out of the desktop I already had, so I wanted to take the hard drive from my desktop (not scsi) and put it in the scsi tower. I plugged it into the IDE ribbon already in the machine, (and the power of course). The machine starts booting, post test and bios config options and everything all the way up until windows should start. then it gives the menu on starting in safe mode, with networking, last known good config, and so on. choosing any option, or even letting the counter run out to start windows does nothing, it just freezes. apparently there is something I need to do that I havent got a clue! :tazz:

If the drive has windows installed onto it on another computer it needs to be reinstalled (or repaired but doesnt always work) on that computer otherwise it wont work as it will be missing hardware drivers for the different system.
