MOBO won't accept different h/drive

Hi Folks, this is part of another posting of mine but I think that it is best separate. A frined has given me a pentium p4 with motherboard and 40 hard drive. I have already got a working hard drive so wanted to put that in the system. The hard drive that I already have is fine. As soon as I a try to connect the new drive I get a system error coming up STOP 0x0000007b (oxF88D9528, 0xC0000034, 0x000000000, 0x000000000) When i take the drive out it works fine on the old PC. I have re-formatted the drive already in the machine and it will install on that but of course I lose all the data from my old drive, i've tried to use acronis with no luck but am I missing something with the MOBO for there to be a reason it won't accept another HD apart from its original. We even tried a second HD that also is working fine and boots on other systems but no this!

Any suggestions!

Try resetting the bios, before booting.
