I would like to transfer a hard disk drive from an old slow laptop with Windows 2000 installed on it to a reciently purchased (but used) Dell Inspiron 3700 laptop. I thought that once it was installed, it would boot up fine. I have been told that the reason that it does not is because all the dsrivers are different. Is this true? Can anyone tell me if there is a way of changing these drivers so that it will work on my Dell Laptop? I am hoping that I can use this hard disk drive and not have to go purchase Windows for my used Dell laptop that came without an operating system installed. Which drivers are needed? Or is it the boot portion that needs changing? When powering up, what is happening wrong. I would like to understand this better. Thanks guys.
