hey, guys i got a new intel socket 478 processor motherboard and a Celeron D 340 Processor. i have an old hard drive with XP home already in(a surge destroyed the original Dell motherboard). i am trying to apply this old HD to the new motherboard. i followed the instruction from here: click here
MY PROBLEM is when i tried to reinstall windows got the screen to select" enter, R , ESC " the computer automatically shut down.
Has it happened more than once? Can you make a partition on that drive and see if you can install Windows to the new partition, to test if it's the drive or some other problem? Can you successfully run a LiveCD with the new board? click here (points to a 50mb download)
yeah, it happened several times already. i will try to make a partition. i am sorry, i don't understand " run a live CD with the new board" i insert the xp setup CD , and boot from the CD then it asks to install(enter) or repair(R) or quit(ESC) then the computer shut down.(i didn't do anything)
thanks a lot for the reply. i don't have a working desktop, i will try to test memory and harddrive later. actually, i got the memory from another computer directly, i think it is good and compatible to the new motherboard.
