Let me see if I have this right...you formated, partitioned, and installed your OS on the hdd in your good computer and then installed it in your other computer?

If this is what you did then that's where you made the mistake. Taking a hdd that has been installed as the master on one computer and then installing it in another with a different motherboard will cause problems with your OS. It could even be fatal.

When you tried to install the OS on the other computer did you reformat it first?
