    I picked up a used computer that has vista
    I have an extra hard drive with windows 7 on it

    Is there something i need to do other than swapping out the hard drives? Replacing the vista hard drive with the windows 7 hard drive.

    When i did this, the pc will automatically run system repair. I get patch prevented the system from starting
    Windows 7 will not start on the pc, so is there something else i must do?

    Windows 7 will have to be installed on the machine that it will run on. It has its configuartion set up for only that machine.
