Moving my 'old' hard drive to a new system and it is stuck in a loop and will not let me boot to windows under any circumstance (Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc.). I did a repair and it showed me the 'Windows' screen for almost 4 seconds and then re-rebooted.

I am certain it is not the drive because I put it back into the old system and it works okay but I have not been able to determine anything wrong with any of the new hardware.

Any thoughts?

Change the BIOS to auto detect or restore defaults. You can't always expect it to see the new drive.

Well i think your old PC's power supply is not providing required voltage to your new hard drive that help it to load windows. Also try to update the BIOS to its new version.

I had considered the power supply as it is just over what is recommended, but when I hooked the HD up to my computer with a 200w greater supply it did the same thing. I also hooked my drive to the new system and it booted right up.

Latest BIOS and it recognizes the drive - still will not boot to Windows.

Upgraded to a 650W power supply - still will not boot to windows.

I can put the drive in its old system and it runs just fine =/
