New Mobo Boot Problem

  old-one 11:55 18 Apr 2005

I've had this problem before. New Mobo not booting from existing HDD. Easily solved then, reformat,reinstall OS. everything OK. As before, Mobo recognises HDD but not its contents. This time I really dont want to loose everything. Its not mine but a friend's (But for how long?) I've installed the HDD in another machine (mine) as slave and explored it. All programes are present and working. How do I make it bootable?
