Question about Intel Pentium 4 1.7G, 1.7 GHz (p41700400256sk478) Processor
Foreign disks, or drives that have pre-existing operating systems installed with prior configurations, are often prone to error unless transplanted into systems with a nearly identical configuration.
The only simply way to rectify this issue is to boot off of the Windows installation disk and perform an "In-place Upgrade" or a "Re-install" of Windows. This method will re-install just the main portions of Windows, and write the new configuration, while in theory not disturbing the rest of the drive's data.
While this is a documented and intended function of the Windows installer it does have its issues.
I can say with confidence that you can attempt this, but I would suggest confirming that you have all necessary data backed up before you do.
As far as the other alternative, you can always save your data, plugging the drive into a different machine, and then do a clean install which is a much better choice as far as performance and stability, but the choice is yours.
This link to Microsoft's site further explains the necessary steps for an "In-Place Upgrade" which really means a Re-installation of a Full Copy (Not an upgrade copy) of Windows, if you were concerned about the terminology.
Those are your options. Should you require any more information, please let us know. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate this solution, Thank you.
