mobo upgrade

  Goolie 22:03 23 Apr 2003

I have just completed a mobo'/proc' upgrade, I was hoping to boot from existing hdd with winxp pro from previous system.
Bios sees hdd ok, but windows will not boot. Blue screen flashes up too quick to read, then system restarts again and repeats.
Please help!

There'll be too many driver issues from the old board. Put in the WinXP CD and boot from it - choose install WinXP - but at the next step choose the repair option rather than the clean install - this should find the changes you have made and install new working drivers.
