If you're doing a major hardware change, you must reinstall your OS. Otherwise it won't work properly, even if you uninstall the drivers and let XP reinstall them again according to your new motherboard.
Catch23 recommended that to many users who did a big hardware change, so yeah. Just reinstall XP after switching the motherboards.
It was either bring this old thread back up or start another. One way or another I could have been "tomatoed" for bumping an old thread or not using the search feature. So anyway here goes.
I have swapped my Biostar MB w/ xp2000+ for an Abit NF7 with Mobile Barton (I'm using 500 watt PS). You guessed it, Blue screen at boot. I thought perhaps someone here may have a suggestion (trick) that others have not thought of. I do have "miniPE" with many features and it does boot into that.
I know a clean install should do the trick but I would really hate to install all those apps I have and reconfigure my desktop to my liking. It's such a hassle. How about an "over the top" install - will I have my desktop intact? Thanks for your responses.
