Don't know the exact problem but generally installing Windows on one computer then putting the HDD in a substantially different computer does cause problems, even when putting the HDD back in the computer used for the installation. Best solution is to re-install Windows on your grandpa's computer if it will boot to the DVD. Another thing to try is to create the System Repair disc on your computer then boot to it on the other. Both computers have to be either 32-bit or 64-bit.

You also have no idea what could be the problem because I checked out and my own pc only boots from its sad if I choose wbm if I try to go directly to the sad it says that there is no bootable devices ask me to put one and re start

I am afraid you will have to invest the 50 cents and get a DVD, Then install it on your grandpa's PC. I am sure grandpa will refund the 50 cents.

Did you enter BIOS setup on Grampa's computer to see if Legacy USB is enabled? Try that now.

If so then you should be able to boot a flash stick if it is correctly formatted using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool
with an ISO that is known good and for the exact version that came with the PC.

You can read more about obtaining and formatting the installation media in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7
which also compiles everything that works best to get and keep a perfect install.

The problem is not the dad price but I don't have a car and here in Brazil it's actually hard to find somewhere they sell this kind of thing and the price us about 2,50 U.S. Dollars (taxes here are a bit above 100%)

It looks like the problem is that the windows installed uefi and the old pc apparently doesn't support uefi so...
Got it working out so tanks for every one

Windows can't install UEFI without a UEFI BIOS.

How did you end up installing it?

We'd better see a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image since half the time we ask something is incorrectly configured.
