Migrating Dell HD to custom machine

 I just purchased a Ins 580 with WIN 7. I took the hard drive out and tried to use it in my custom game machine and it will not boot up. I tried the repair but it still won't boot. Long story as to why but both legal copies of Win XP and 7. So what do I have to change to get rid of the Dell hardware preferences that it is looking for? I have it booted up as a slave in this machine now. I can look at everything but it won't boot. I know I can clear the HD but Dell doesn't send a copy of WIN 7 to reinstall on the new machine. I thought it would be easier to change what it was looking for than get my copy from them, lol
