Do not try to boot from that hard drive. When you introduce a new hard drive in your system the BIOS assumes you want to make it the first boot device. Change that back to the drive that has been running Windows in your desktop. Then you should be able to see the files on the net book drive. You may need to take some action to access the files/folders. If that is the case look at the link below.

If by chance, your desktop doesn't have any SATA drives installed other than the net book drive, you will need to install SATA controller drivers. Get those drivers from the manufacturer of your motherboard or computer.

What do you mean when you log on it wants to verify?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
