Windows 7: BSOD "stop" after moving SSD to new mobo

BSOD "stop" after moving SSD to new mobo

The power supply and/or mobo on a machine I was using to run a home automation system went kaput but the SanDisk SSD with the software and OS was fine, so I built a new mini ITX system (based on a MSI N3150I ECO mobo with an N3150 Quad Core processor) and put it in there. When I started it up the first time, it appeared to be starting to boot Win 7 (got the swirling panes graphic), then I got a BSOD. It went by too quickly to get the number, and all I remember seeing in that area was STOP. Accordingly I can't give any of the normal BSOD reporting details.

I restarted it and went into the BIOS to make sure all the settings are OK. When I rebooted it offered to go into startup repair, which I did. It scans things for a while then offers to run system restore. At this dialog it hangs, and has done this on repeated tries. I suppose maybe the thing to do now is boot from a Win 7 repair disk, but I thought I'd better check with you all before trying this.

Hello cormanaz mate can you check the temps in the BIOS please and can you get safe mode if so run these

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2 >in safe mode if need be

it maybe that you cannot and then if it were me I would be checking all was reseated because it sounds like a hardware problem to me.

The other thing that occurs tome is that the OS on the SSD will not work properly on the new mobo because the code is tied to the old board (is your Windows media (DVD) an OEM or retail?)

Yeah it's OEM. But I thought it would give me the chance to apply a new key, no? I can't see any info about temps in BIOS. When I choose the SSD as the boot point it only offers startup repair. When I choose Windows boot manager it leads me into some kind of EFI shell.

You cannot simply migrate a drive from one machine to the other as the OS will be loaded with drivers for your old hardware and will not recognise the new hardware
Sometimes it will work if hardware is not too different but often will result in BSOD, the most important bios setting to check is the sata mode which must be the same as it was on the old machine
The options for this are (assuming you don't use raid) ide or ahci with the later being the better option but setting this wrong will generally lead to a fail to boot/BSOD so if your not sure try one then the other.
Other bios options to check are fast boot/secure boot etc ie settings required by win 8 and above, these will probably need to be turned off

System restore will not help you as your restore points are built for your old hardware which is still wrong for your current setup, your only option is to try safe mode to get to a desktop at which point WU will fill in any missing drivers for your system but theres no guarantee you can get to a desktop, if this fails you can try a repair install following by a clean install

Regards activation your oem is tied to the old motherboard if you can get the current install running then activation may hold although not strictly legit if you end up doing a clean install then you can contact Microsoft and explain the situation that you had to replace a faulty mobo and they may help you out, others have had success with this in the past but its not a given

OK so I checked the sata mode offerings in the bios, and there is only one, ACHI mode. So if it was IDE on the old one, I suppose I'm screwed. The fast boot, etc., are turned off.

Look the BIOS ACHI is supposed to allow SATA connections so if the old drive is an IDE it may not be shown _ I stand to be corrected and as Pauly and I have said the original OEM is tied to the old board and cannot be activated on the new board.

Having said that if you phone Microsoft support they often let you use the same code on a new board if you explain to them the problem ie the old board has died - as long as you do not do this more than say twice. You will of course need and ISO to do that if you do not have any media (DVD) for the version of Windows you have.

If this is the case then you could borrow a friends DVD as they contain all versions of Windows on each one and if you use the ei.cfg removal tool you can install from it see this tutorial for how it is done

OK so doing that would involve a clean install, right? There is no way to activate the old setup even if MS allows it?

Its irrelevant if you cant get the old setup to boot, if it wont boot your only option is to start again and try your luck with MS

Yes, I understand that. What I don't understand is why it won't come to the point where it tells me I have an invalid key. I tried the W7 repair disk too, and it gets to the point of the "system recovery options" dialog where it asks me to select a keyboard input method, then it won't accept input anymore.

I have never had this situation before so I don't know what's supposed to happen. I assume if I could get the recovery to proceed there would come a point where it says "hey you have an invalid key, enter a valid one." If possible I would like to get that to happen, hoping I can get MS to give me a new key. Is this even possible, or should I just give up at this point and go for a clean install (either with MS permission or by buying a new OS disk)?
