So the problem. I have two pc A and B. I took A pc HDD and made a full clone to pcs B HDD. B - has different hardware and now when i try to boot it does not find my HDD. When i insert windows 7 installation cd, and choose repair i can upload drivers and my OS is now visible but just for that moment. After reboot i can't see. I think it is becouse at repair window it only load driver to RAM and after reboot it removes it. My question. Is there any tool that i can put drivers to my OS that it could recognize my HDD and boot. I can't boot to safe mode. Changing raid+ahci to ide in bios does not help.

Is it ide or sata?. – ichathan Jul 23 '12 at 8:17
sata. I am using Intel 520 series 240 GB SSD. My old ssd is the same just new hardware. I know what driver it need, but i don't know how to insert it to OS. – Tadziz Jul 23 '12 at 8:20
I'm amazed this worked at all unless A and B use the same chipset? – Dave Jul 23 '12 at 8:30
The problem might be with your bios. Try upgrading it. – ichathan Jul 23 '12 at 8:30
In BIOS, change sata mode from ahci to ide. – tumchaaditya Jul 23 '12 at 8:49
