We replaced a mobo that had the intel chipset with a AMD chipset mobo. We did an over the top repair and when windows comes up it says you must activate windows BEFORE you can login. if you say ok it goes to a blank desktop with no icons. I can't activate since the ethernet drivers are not installed and the activation screen does not come up with the code you need when you call Microsoft to activate by phone. I also get a error message saying Microsoft Feeds Synchernization has encountered an error. This is an customers computer and I don't want to format and install since he would loose all his programs.
