This question already has an answer here:

I am using an Intel board made in 2009, model P5KPLAM-IN series but today I've upgraded it to a DDR4 supported Mother manufactured by ASUS with Intel I3 7th generation and I deployed the same hard disk and I don't have old motherboard for some reason.

Nnow whenever I boot up the old HDD in the new motherboard Windows 7 booting logo starts loading but before fully loaded on screen Windows 7 reboots automatically.

I tried booting with Windows7 bootable DVD but mouse doesn't works at Windows 7 installation GUI, I also tried loading driver from USB and rescan drivers but nothing happens, Windows don't find drivers in it.

I connected the hard disk to another running pc with Windows7 it shows a single 470GB c: drive .

If somehow I load ASUS motherboard drivers in the attached HDD then I hope everything starts work normal.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Can you boot in Safe Mode? What support did you get with the new motherboard: a CD with the OEM drivers and applications, or a web link? In either case, copy the OEM files to the old disc, then install them from Safe Mode. If you can identify the old motherboard software, remove it first. – AFH Apr 28 '18 at 17:02
  • By default Windows Installer does not run in Safe Mode. – Moab Apr 28 '18 at 22:06

It is a common issue when trying to use an old disk with a new motherboard. The easiest solution would be to use a new disk and mount the old disk as a secondary then copy over what you need.

Alternatively, if there is sufficient room on the disk, use a Linux utility boot CD to repartition the disk, moving the old data to the end of the disk for example then putting a new partition at the start. Then install a fresh copy of Windows. You might need to leave the old data's partition set to hidden until you've set up the new copy of Windows.

  • Yes, sir the data is important because It contain server' backup and is there any way to load latest motherboard driver while our window is not booting up because I have latest motherboard driver dvd recive with my new motherboard, – dx.hmnt Apr 29 '18 at 1:17
  • It isn't easy since the drivers operate at such a low level. It is a job for an expert. By far the easiest, safest and most reliable route is to mount the disk on another computer or, as explained as a secondary disk on the main computer. For future reference, a computer hard disk is not a suitable location for a backup nor should you ever have a single backup copy. By all means use a disk for a copy of a backup for speed of access. – Julian Knight Apr 30 '18 at 19:44
