    Problem using my old laptop's hdd on my desktop pc


    Hi. I need some help regarding the use of my old laptop's hdd for my desktop pc. I've been using my desktop computer for 4 years, but last week my hdd failed. I couldn't go back to my classes and do my projects without my pc and i don't have the money to buy a new one, so I've tried to improvises and used my broke laptop's hdd. I've been researching at the internet if it would work and found some answer. I inserted my laptop's hdd onto my pc and crossed my fingers. It did show the windows startup but after 3 seconds a bluescreen pops out labelled "technical information:***STOP 0x000007b 0x80786A58, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000 and suddenly restarted on its own. I did tried to repair windows 7 but wasn't able to repair itself. I wasn't able to go to safemode because of the bluescreen, and i really don't want to risk erasing all of the data inside my laptop's hdd. My laptop's hdd is still in perfect condition.



    Note: The os of my Desktop's HDD is windows 10, while my laptop's windows 7. I DO have a Windows 10 DvD.


    SPECS:

    i5 4460 3.20 GHZ

    MSI GTX 1050TI 4GB

    2x8b Ripjaws V ddr3

    Asus H81m-d

    Generic 700 watts psu
