You probably downloaded a bad version of Windows. Go purchase a legit copy and then reinstall it.

Did it prompt you that your windows installation would be moved to Windows.old? If not, and you actually formatted the drive, all your files are now gone... sad face

No, Windows will recognize that there's different hardware and not allow you to use it.

Yes, it should work without issue.

Quote:
The Windows Boot Manager (BOOTMGR) reads the boot configuration data and displays an operating system selection menu,[1] and is thus, in some respects, equivalent to the boot selection menu functionality of NTLDR in prior versions of Windows NT. A notable change is that the Windows Boot Manager is invoked by pressing the space bar instead of the F8 function key. [2] The F8 key still remains assigned for advanced boot options once the Windows Boot Manager menu appears.

Go into the BIOS and disable booting from network. Make sure the boot priority is CDROM first and that should fix the issue.
