Windows 7: Computer will not read hard drives installed from another

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

I should of explained things better.

Other than security reasons their is another reason to use the forum method.

Many people around the world read our post.
They have various hardware and visual setting for there system. They also have different eye sight.

They are not going to change those settings to see a posted picture.
Using the forums tutorial and method to the best of my knowledge makes reading those picture work for most everybody.

With the system I'm on now has a 40in display across the room. I'm not going to changed the DPI, fonts, or resolution to read a posted picture.
Not many will.

If I could of read the picture I would of informed you that Drives need numbers and Partitions need to have Letters assigned.

This forum has thousands of tutorials that are probable the best in the world. You will see them post in most threads.

If one doesn't understand something about the tutorial all that needs to be done is ask for help. If I can't help I will find a member that can help.

I will not argue about such things. I will just find another member that needs help and continue on with my life.

I hope this gives one and all a better understand of why I post tutorials to help members.

Of course it also saves a lot of keyboard ink with me typing all that stuff in the tutorial over and over again.
