Samsung hd161hj problem
If his hard drive responds in safe mode then the bios is detecting his hard drive right and nothing you can do will make it any different. It doesn't matter what the bios is set like on his computer and how it installed.
The problem is you have two different machines. When windows installed on his computer it detected his motherboard chipset, the motherboard add on, the ide and psi ports and installed the drivers for his board. Now you're installing it on your computer with a different motherboard, different chipset, ports etc.. Windows doesn't autodetect and install motherboard drivers like it does other peripherls. Unless the motherboards are amost identical, when you put a hard drive with Windows installed on another system into a different system Windows will 99% of the time fail to run. Most the time you'll get a blue screen of death with a driver name on it that failed. You can configure that drive as a slave and put both drives in and boot off yours and see his.
