Hi having a problem thats surprised me. XP Pro, SP3 taken from duff M/B and placed into new pc - m/b would normally work, or after an XP repair, this one doesn`t. M/B bios sees HDD ok,160 sata and the XP repair sees old XP install ok and does part 1 of repair, but upon pc restart (should go into HDD boot XP setup) nothing happens pc just sits at boot and no load ???. Any ideas - Really don`t wont to do a new install as some key software installed that my client doesn`t have. Tried in 2 units with no joy !! - Tried an old HDD in new unit and will load a new install ok, so M/B pc working fine.
Any ideas please ??
