switched HDDs & got blue screen error

I'm not sure if this is the correct board for this.

My motherboard had failed on my Dimension 4400.  I want to access the main hard drive from it.  Someone has given me a Dimension 2400 they no longer use, & I thought I could just remove that HDD, & put my own in its place, but found out that won't work.  I get a blue screen error -- 0X0000007B (0XF97D528, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).  The 2400 does work fine with its original HDD installed.

From searching the forums, I'm guessing I would have to re-install Windows XP to get my drive to work in the 2400.  Is that the case?  Wouldn't that wipe out my HDD?

Re: switched HDDs & got blue screen error

Yes, you will need to format the drive and reload Windows, and yes it will indeed wipe out the drive in the process.
