In other words, reinstall from scratch, then copy the afore-mentioned

Why would he want to reinstall from scratch?

I was assuming that these files (site-start.el, default.el, etc.) were
installed with emacs.  If so, he only said he copied over the folder
containing emacs.  That implies he may never have properly installed
emacs on the new machine.

Those files are not included in the source distribution, but some
precompiled distributions use them to define their own customizations.
The OP said he's using a precompiled distribution on Windows, so it's
possible it was packaged with site-start.el and/or default.el files; or
that he or an administrator updated them at some point thereafter.

He also said that he copied "all of the .el files that were referenced"
(in his .emacs, I'm guessing), so copying _all_ of the .el and .elc files
(for freedom and speed, resp.) would get him closer to a proper
installation without starting all over.  Of course, it still leaves
the various info/* and etc/* files and lib-src executables.
