My motherboard is dead,Thinking to change a new one.Is there any other way to get my new motherboard to run my old HDD version of windows without deleting everything? Thanks in advance
Are you sure its not a PSU issue,or CPU issue before you buy a new mobo.I did answer this in the other thread you posted in but i didnt fully understand what you meant.
If the mobo is dead, then you could try a repair install of XP when booting up: click hereHow to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install
Or even the plug fuse.Secondly, if you do need a new motherboard, what version of Windows do you have?All that would be required with XP is, once the Bios settings have been configured, is to Repair XP.Have your XP installation disk in the drive, enable Boot from CD in the Bios and then Save and Exit.Instructions on an XP Repair session can be found at:click hereAll your current programs, applications, configuration etc will be retained on the hard drive.
I know this may sound daft,but how can he repair XP if the mobo is dead,lol it wont boot,unless you mean after he fitted a new mobo)
Boot to safe mode BEFORE you allow windows to get to a normal boot,then follow the drivers to delete from :Drivers to disable BEFORE changing motherboardclick here
