    1. I first had windows xp installed on my pc which had a audio device problem and i wanted to solve it as well as load windows 7 so i switched to hard drive with windows 7 already installed and it started to go into a boot loop so i switched out rams and processor with no luck so i switched them back now when i try to load into windows 7 i het a BSOD which says BAD_POOL_HEADER and when i switch to windows xp it also gives me a BSOD with a stop 0x0000007E code and i cant get into amy windows at all. It doesnt want to boot from a usb either as i have no disc i can only get into BIOS also when i press F8 to start in safe mode or last known config it just reboots

    Switch back to the original hard drive.

    Unless the Win7 drive was previously installed in that computer when Win7 was installed, it's not going to work (as you have found out). You very often cannot take a working drive from one computer and move it to another. None of the hardware drivers for the new machine are present in the current Win7 installation, thus Win7 can't boot. Sometimes, if the hardware was similar, you will get lucky and Windows can boot and update the necessary drivers. But most often, all it does is crash.

    Wipe the drive (or get a new drive) and perform a fresh install of Win7 onto the bare drive in that computer.

    I will also note, that depending on the original type and source of Win7, it may not be legally possible to move it to another computer.
