Hello,

I recently swapped my hard drive from my old laptop, to my new one. Everytime I turn on my computer it takes me to a black screen where it says that there was a boot failure, and I would have to strike F1 to get it to continue.
Recently, it hasn't been leaving this screen, even after I reseat the hard drive and check all the connections. There is no other problem than this hard drive failure. There is nothing wrong with this hard drive, I just got it with Windows 10 installed.
Any ideas?

That would be the problem. You can't just swap windows from 1 system to another and expect it to work. You'll need to do a clean install with the drive in the new system. You may also need a new windows license if the previous licence(from the old system) was a pre installed OEM version.
