You have twice the same entry, but one is pointing to eth0 and the second one 
is naming the same as eth1. I suppose, one of it is the card from the old pc.

What happens, if you delete the orphaned entry manually?

You can delte it, and rename the last entry to "eth0" (if this is our primary 
card). I am sure, you will know, hich MAC is the active one.

Good luck!
