The mobo on a piece of equipment that I have went bad and I have had to replace it.
now I'm getting a blue screen stop error and windows won't boot at all ( not even safe mode)

I'm sure that this is b/c of the difference in the mobo controller driver and if at all possible would
rather manually replace the driver file than re-installing the operating system (xp pro )

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

When you change the motherboard did you reinstall the operating system afterward? If you didn't then that's your problem.

"Moving a hard drive with Windows* 2000 or Windows XP* already installed to a new motherboard without reinstalling the operating system is not recommended.

If a hard drive is moved to a new computer, the registry entries and drivers for the mass storage controller hardware on the new motherboard are not installed in Windows for the new computer and you may not be able to start Windows. This is documented in Microsoft's knowledge base article. This is true even if you move the hard drive to a motherboard with the same chipset, as different hardware revisions can cause this issue as well.

Additionally, moving a hard drive to a new motherboard may not exhibit any errors until you install new IDE drivers. This is because each chipset uses a different Plug-n-Play (PNP) ID to identify it. If you move your motherboard, your registry will have multiple PNP IDs (for the old hardware as well as the new hardware). If there are multiple entries in the registry, Windows cannot determine which hardware to initialize and therefore fails with a STOP error."


You might get lucky and get by with a repair installation of the operating system.

I didn't have an option of doing any prep as the mobo did not give any signs of going bad, just would not
power on this morning when the operator turned the machine on.

Unfortunately it does not appear that I am not going to get away with a repair installation as windows setup bluescreened
after attempting to boot from the HD for phase two of the windows install ( GUI portion).

but life goes on.........thanx for the attempt at helping me

For a repair installation you boot from the installation disk, so the blue screen doesn't matter.

Note: The system repair function will remove any updates you have previously installed that are not included on the CD. Drivers will also be reverted to their original XP versions, as well as some settings (network & performance settings may sometimes be reset to their defaults). It may be necessary to reactivate your Windows XP as well. When finished, you will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update, because they are all replaced during repair.

Boot the computer from the XP CD. You may need to change boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.

When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below

This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.
You do not want to choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R.

Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair isn't one of the option end the installation, this will mean that you will need to do a fresh installation of XP.

The repair will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot, the repair installation will continue after the reboot.

I did all of that but after when the setup tried to boot from the hard drive ( reboot ) the setup blue screened and the computer went
into its blue screen / reboot cycle.

I've now prepared the drive for a clean install.

thanks
