If you are trying to run your new computer with just your old harddrive then it will not work - hence the blue screen. You need to add the old drive as a slave/secondary drive, still booting from your new drive (you may need to check your BIOS settings to make sure it doesn't try booting from the old drive, especially if they are both SATA connected).
