Re: crashed hard drive

If I understand the process you used, it sounds as though the other computer installed the windows 10 on the hard drive and then the hard drive was moved to the computer in question.  If that is correct, then that is the reason it does not work.  It will be easy to fix, however.  Go to Microsfot Windows 10 download:

Scroll down to the "Download tool now" button, but first read the "Using tool to create installation media"

Then reinstall Windows 10 on the new hard drive while in the expected host of the new drive.
