Swapping drives between PCs is almost NEVER going to work -- usually due to hardware differences.

 

Additionally, with OEM versions of Windows (what is on the Acer and on the HP), the Windows license is tied to the PC, not to the owner.  So even if you could get the HP to boot, when Windows runs, it will deactivate itself and you will not be able to reactivate it because the license was for the Acer, not the HP.

 

We have no idea what the Acer configuration was, so we have no way to assist on this.
