New PC, Orig O/S on hard disk.

  wossie 12:13 09 Sep 2006

Is it possible to repair a hard disk with an operating system to a different PC. Or fit a new motherboard and CPU and and repair the system using the XP disk. I have tried this and the PC just keeps rebooting when normal startup is selected. Thanks again.
