If you're trying to boot from the old HDD then it's clearly something wrong with the OS/setup on that drive. Simply don't boot from it until you've formatted it/fixed it.

If that's not the case then just try removing the HDD again and see if the problem goes away. If it does, it's a bizarre hardware issue Ive never come across or heard of.

If it's still doing it after removing the old HDD then odds are you've transferred some virus/malware from one PC to another. Time to run a bunch of AV software.


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.

Are you plugging the second drive into the right IDE slot on the motherboard? If you are running the second drive as a slave then don't forget that you need to change the jumper on the disc from 'master' to 'slave'.
