Swapping hard drives from AMD board to Intel board

If you have an XP installation disk (even better with SP2 on it) and can get into the Bios, set to Boot from CD and then do an XP Repair.

See:

for details of how to do it (DON'T select the Recovery Console in error, choose to Repair).

XP doesn't always like a new mobo and a Repair gets over this problem if it arises.

I've done this twice with new motherboards and it's been successful each time.
