This is possible although it would require a significant amount of research, time and effort to implement.

You would first need to create a VHD image of your old HDD using a tool such as Disk2vhd, then you would need to mount this image as a virtual machine on your new computer using a program such as Virtualbox

Of course you would still need to somehow transfer the created VHD to your new PC. The easiest way to do this would be to use a portable external HDD, and if you had one of those then your original problem of moving files between the two PC's wouldn't actually be a problem.
