Having purchased a Mobo bundle with Celeron D 2.4Ghz processor and a MSI 848P Neo-V, I cant get it to boot up properly. I have two HDD's. One has Win98 and the other Win XP. When I try to boot to the Win XP one, a blue screen message appears saying that there is a problem. It says if it is the first time I have seen the error message, then reboot. It says if it keeps happening then I should uninstall any newly installed hard drives and also chack them for errors. I booted in safe mode and Scandisk-ed the Win XP drive. There were no errors on it. The Win98 drive will only boot to Safe mode. When I try a normal boot it says there was an error when installing NDIS?
When changing motherboards, it is far better to do a complete clean install of the OS, because each make type of mobo will have diferent mobo drivers that may not be compatable with what loaded into the OS on the hard drive.
It sounds like you might have a change with the win98 version, because you can get into safe mode, so it might be possiable to find the old mobo drivers and uninstall them and then load your new mobo drivers on.
But with the xp versions, you might be lucky if you've got the xp disc, boot up with this and try the recovery and see if this wil help. Or try the recovery consel, you will need knowledge of DOS to sort it, otherwise it is a case of format the haerd drive and do a fresh install.
A fresh install is always the best when changing mobo.
