Windows 7: Randomly occuring BSODs, probably caused by drivers

This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Question: I have access to a legit download (free) of windows through my university. Is software installed on one harddrive transferable to another installation of windows? I have some software which requires a lot of work to install (heavily plugin-dependent) and I'm thinking of simply getting a new harddrive, installing windows on it and then copying the software over from my old drive.

Is this possible to do or will stuff just plain break if I try it?

You can copy/paste the files you need, but there are register stuff that are required too which is harder to 'copy/paste' as in most cases you don't know which register key you need and 1 missing key could break the software. It could be a great risk, most of the times it is faster to just install it again instead of copy/paste it.
