I keep getting tossed into Protection error or Blue Screen!
The harddrive from another computer, with an O/S installed on it already, is the problem.
Am I to assume the harddrive you're trying to install, has Windows for an O/S?
Microsoft's Users License states, "One GENUINE copy of Windows per One computer"
The genuine copy of Windows on the harddrive you're trying to install, has already been Activated on the computer it came out of.
(Microsoft has a Master disk of each Windows O/S. The copy the user obtains, is a copy made from this disk. It is then a Genuine copy from Microsoft. If it isn't a Genuine copy, it is an illegal copy)
When Windows is installed on a computer, it assigns 'codecs' to major hardware components of the computer.
Think of these 'codecs' as serial numbers, for the hardware components.
(No computer owner personal information is recorded. Just THAT genuine copy of Windows, to THOSE hardware components)
Some of the major components are, Processor, Harddrive, Motherboard, (More specifically the BIOS program and version, that's on the BIOS chip),
and Graphics chip. (GPU)
Change two or more hardware components, and a 'red flag' is put up. 'Codecs' do not match for the AOpen motherboard, and the hardware components on it.
(Different BIOS program, different Processor, and different GPU)
Therefore, it is believed to be installed on more than one computer.
Easiest solution would be to buy a full installation disk of Windows, and install it.
[Also go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, set the first boot device to CDROM]
