Windows 7 Not booting on laptop? strang... help please...

Ok, so i did some crap and i had to reformat my laptop hdd by putting it in spare sata and power cable things in my DESKTOP. I installed Windows 7 on it, along with my default disk which is also running Windows 7, all is well. but, for some reason, I can ONLY boot on my desktop? I tried it on my laptop with default BIOS settings, booted from hdd and boom. all i see is a cmd looking thing which doesnt seem to be doing anything... pleeease help

If your Fujitsu Notebook came with Windows 7, you can Clean install with the Reinstall & Drivers DVD's that came with it.

If your Fujitsu Notebook came with Windows Vista & you Upgraded to Windows 7, you can Clean install with the Upgrade DVD.

Why did you install it on your desktop and took the drive from deskopt to laptop? You can install on laptop as well!! or is the problem the fact that you don't have dvd on your laptop and no usb stick/external drive?

Anyway ... what's the sata setting in desktop BIOS (AHCI or IDE)? put same setting in laptop BIOS and try again
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

See if this tutorial:
Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer
can help.

You could try also Startup Repair, if errors reported run it up to three times with rebooting after each run.

Thanks for the replys! These don't work for me on my laptop for some reason... I can't boot my Windows 7 DVD and I had to take my laptops drive out to so sort it out if that helps... I can run it on one machine but not on the other :P what do u mean by drivers? Are the specific to the machine?

Thanks in advance!

Why can't you boot form DVD? Do you see files on DVD from recovery environment? So is your dvd-drive working?
If so, Change boot order in BIOS and let it start from DVD.

Of course drivers are specific for a machine! But most of time the system just boots fine when putting disk in another machine. Just remove all not used drivers in "device manager" afterwards. Also uninstall hardware specific software which is not needed anymore.
