Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

If your new PC is UEFI and the Win7 SSD came from a machine using BIOS, then the SSD will not boot because you have the wrong BIOS/UEFI settings.  

 

You would have to go into the BIOS/UEFI settings in your PC and change them to Legacy boot.

 

Also, when you created the Win7 SSD, were you certain to include the BOOT partition, not just the OS partition?

I don't know about the boot partition. Also, when I try to boot it says  "start PXE over IPv6".

 

When I try to change to the Legacy boot I get the following message: "You must disable secure boot before you may configure this option".

 

How do I do that?

That is correct -- you have to disable secure boot -- but I don't have a UEFI-based PC to determine HOW that is done.

 

You need to go through the UEFI settings, as in there somewhere, will be the option to disable secure boot.

Good Luck
