Don't do that. Do a fresh installation. You're lucky that it boots at all.

The only OS that I know of which is pretty much guaranteed to work when using a drive from a different machine is OS X. With OS X all you have to do is delete the cache that contains the drivers that load on startup (before switching drives) then you can start up with any drive with OS X on any Mac - as long as the hardware "generation gap" is not too big.

Windows uh, how can I put it, it "wraps itself too tightly around the hardware" for that to work reliably. Even if it boots you're going to run into trouble sooner or later.
