    Is the other laptop the same exact model ?

    If you replaced the motherboard with the same model, Windows should boot. Make sure the hard drive is properly installed.

    Does the bios see the hard drive ?

    If all still fails...... Re Install windows to the new motherboard.

    Clean Install - Windows 8

    Disable secure boot in the bios.

    Disable UEFI and choose Legacy boot.

    Delete all partitions during the install and you shouldn`t have any more problems.
