My motherboard recently died without notice, so I bought a new one. Since my motherboard died all of suddenly I was unable to back things up from my windows 7 installation, and I really need to be able to my current installation working with this new motherboard.
The only part of my build that I have changed is my motherboard from a BIOSTAR G31-M7G DVI LGA 775 Intel G31 (dead) to a ECS BLACK SERIES P45T-A LGA 775 Intel P45 (new). Currently when I try to boot windows 7 it detects that the system has changed and prompts me to either start windows normally or run the start up repair tool. Starting windows normally comes up with a blue screen, while when I run the tool, it says the problem cannot be repaired. I guessing some of my problems are coming from the fact that I also changed chipsets. Booting into safe mode also gives me a blue screen.
My question comes down to what are my options without doing a clean install? Would it be possible to do a repair install like you can in windows XP? Or are there somethings I could do through command prompt (I can get this through a part of the start up tool) or the windows 7 disc? Or if I were able to get another of windows 7 running on a different partition could I do anything to be able to get back on he old install?
