I just recently bought a new motherboard and processor to replace my old crappy one, and i swapped everything out today and got it all back together, but when I boot it up now, i have a bit of a problem. It boots up fine into the bios and whatnot, recognizes everything, but when it gets to windows, i get the windows is now starting screen or whatever, and as soon as it actually gets TO windows, i get a blue screen of crap for a split second and the computer just resets itself. Anyone know what this is about? Could this possibly be a crappy security feature of windows xp pro (which im running on my hard drive) since it was all configured for my old motherboard? I tried using an old hard drive i had w/ windows 98 on it and it booted up into windows fine (except for it wanting all the drivers and crap for all my stuff) but at least it booted to windows. Ive got an extra 20 gig drive lyin around. If i format that, install a fresh copy of xp pro on it configured to the new motherboard, would i be able to hook my old drive as a slave and grab all my crap off of it? Or anyone have any suggestions? please?
