Windows 7: Could not boot windows 7, new hardware.

26 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 64bit home premium
Could not boot windows 7, new hardware.

I just put together a new computer but wanted to use my old hard drive. Windows would boot but then get stuck before the four colors could form the microsoft logo. So i asked a question on yahoo answers and it was stated that i would have to re-install windows. So i went ahead a decided to upgrade at the same time and got the windows 7 ultimate disk. So when i booted it from the disk it said if you want to upgrade restart your computer and boot like normal then pop in the cd and upgrade. The problem here is that i can't boot windows and i want to do an upgrade install so i dont lose all my data. So i went ahead and backed up my computer with windows 7 home premium on it. I want to restore all the data on it except for windows 7 home premium because i will have windows 7 ultimate on my new hardrive( thats after i format the drive and wipe it clean and load windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on it)and no other data. How can i restore everything else besides windows 7 home premium? I have used drive image xml?
