How to install the system on the old hard drive?

Hooked up the old drive to the IDE port, booted from the install drive. When you select a partition from this disk (the only one) in the process of installing Windows 7, comes the following error:
Installing Windows on this drive. Maybe this computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Make sure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.

How to solve this problem? Thank you!

I would boot from a bootable Flexi and deployed there the image of Acronis. Or wim would set...
: choose screw. In IDB, dB loader from 7s. there are hints. section must be active and on topic (PBR) is also desirable loader vindovyh. Doubt - do copy the mbr and pbr. - Aliza_Halvorson72 commented on July 5th 19 at 00:02
Yeah, I think I'll try to do. as panauti in the responses menu items in the BIOS are missing, don't know what to try. Ie, if you deploy a system image to that drive, boot from it won't be a problem? - aurelio_OReilly commented on July 4th 19 at 23:47
: A bunch of times, and did so. Usually not a problem. the more you IDE the screw. - Aliza_Halvorson72 commented on July 4th 19 at 23:50
: after the deployment of the current through bootice check that the partition was active and stood need a of course that everything seems OK. But not loaded due to the curve of the motherboard. then put GRUB bootloader. - Aliza_Halvorson72 commented on July 4th 19 at 23:53
: bootice downloaded, will check, just don't know what the bootloader in my case it will be needed. True Image used, but with the default settings, everything worked. How will the IDE - don't know yet. What is the install GRUB loader? - aurelio_OReilly commented on July 4th 19 at 23:56
And Yes, how to use bootice to check this with a loader? Started, but did not understand. - aurelio_OReilly commented on July 4th 19 at 23:59

Most likely it is necessary to put the HDD mode from AHCI to Legacy.

Do not neglect the most exotic versions, until the author of the question gave no reason to dismiss these versions with move. So I'll ask - maybe this section is just not set as active (bootable)? Or the disk is marked in MBR format, and physical sector of the disk containing the master boot record (cylinder 0, head 0, sector 1) is faulty?
The first is easily recoverable, the second not.
In Disk Management the drive is marked as Active, Primary Partition. The drive properties shows the structure of the MBR, as well as another (new) disk on which the installation occurs without problems. Regarding the health sector can not say, but the drive itself is working, detected! system, if, for example, be loaded from another drive with the installed system. - aurelio_OReilly commented on July 4th 19 at 23:51
