What is boot information afetr transferring data from laptop to desktop?


I had a crash on my toshiba laptop satelite 1905 (xp home) and want to transfer the data from that hardrive to my desktop described on the previous page. I have the adapters for this. But when I hooked up the laptop drive to the ribbon cable as a secondary drive, I got a message searching for boot information. After disconnecting the drive from my laptop the desktop booted fine. What steps do I have to take to have my desktop recognize this drive to recover the data on that drive?
