Do you the same error on both computers? If not, you did not copy all files.

Apparently, you are trying to link to Boost statically and you don't have static version
of Boost libraries. I don't know if the Boost Consulting installer includes static libraries,
you better ask Boost Consulting about that.

Alternatively, you can build Boost from the sources yourself, passing the "link=static" flag
to bjam to make it build static libraries. If you get a specific error doing that, please
report it.
