any advise?

I'm moving to a new pc and want to dual boot my old hard drive.

I don't want to have to reinstall every single program.

It hangs after loading the drivers, even in safe mode.

if it is an old drive from your old computer there may not be the proper drivers to support your new computer in spite of the repair install.

can you explain what you mean by you want to "dual boot" your old hard drive?

if repair install still giving you problem, you might need to put your old hdd back into the old pc and remove all the drivers first. there are instructions on the net you can google. here are some examples:
