Windows 7: Operating System Crashing on Boot Up - Newly built machine

23 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Operating System Crashing on Boot Up - Newly built machine

Last night, I built my first desktop machine. Most of my components were brand new, but I kept my old hard drive.(Which contained my Windows Home Premium 64 bit OS on it.)

When I finally went to power it up for the first time, it booted up normally, and then when it goes to the black screen with the colors swirling together to make the windows logo, right away it quickly flashed to a blue screen and then restarted.

I then went into the repair windows mode, but the automatic repairs failed. They left me with these details:

Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200924
Problem Signature 05: Autofailover
Problem Signature 06: 3
Problem Signature 07: No Root Cause
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 1033

The hard drive with the operating sytem was working fine for me yesterday in my old machine. So I am assuming it has to be a problem with the new hardware, or I failed to connect something, or i need to change a setting.

Any advice would be welcome. This is my first build, so i may have made a rookie mistake.

Did you run Sysprep on the drive before removing it from the old computer? Most likely, the drive controllers are different, and that's the issue.

You could go through a bunch of steps to make it work on the new system, but it is always your best bet to do a fresh install. You have all new hardware, meaning all new drivers, etc. In the time it would take you to repair this and hopefully get it booting, you could be done the fresh install...and it will run better as well.

No, I did not run SysPrep before I pulled it from my old machine. I just unplugged it, and plugged it into my new machine.

I would prefer not to lose my data on the hard drive, but I bought a new hard drive with my new machine. I was going to do a fresh install on that drive last night, but my optical drive didnt have the right connector for my new MoBo, (IDE) so I havent had a chance to try that yet.

I have never swapped hard drive before, but I guess I didnt think about all the new drivers. I will have to find a new optical drive and go from there.

Thanks a lot for the reply.

No one said anything about losing data. You could do a clean install on the new system with the new hard drive, and then connect your old drive later on to pull your old data off of.

Also, you could install Windows 7 from a USB flash drive, if needed. We have tutorials for that here, and it actually takes less time than installing from DVD.
