    the bsod tells you that some drivers do not work with the new hardware as they were meant to work with the old configuration. so basically you should do a fresh install on a new system unsless you use almost the same or exactly the same hardware configuration. everything else is a workaround for a workaround.

    if you don't want to do a fresh install try boot into safe mode with f8 after the boot post. then remove the drivers for special hardware such as video card, chipset, network adapters, anything that is not a common driver.
    be aware that this procedure may make it a nightmare putting the drive back in the old computer!

    good luck anyway
