    Hey guys, ive just build a new computer with (almost) all new components apart from my boot drive (120 GB 840 EVO and my hard drive seagate 1 TB) but my computer wont boot, im wondering if because my old computer had a amd CPU and MOBO if thats causing my new computer from working. Any thoughts?

    Did you set your primary boot drive in BIOS? Did you format the SSD and reinstall Windows?

    if you have access to a computer you can download install media for your key in the case of windows 8.1 or ISO images are available in all versions of windows 7. Which do you need? I hope you know your key? or can you get it from your old set up?

    Even if the disk was to boot if you have gone from AMD to intel then the system will crash

    Check to see the Sata settings if it is AHCI then try it on IDE. Newer systems fail to see boot drive if these settings do not match
