I only put this in the Win XP forum because that is the era of computers most likely to have a motherboard die and thus leaving a user who wants their windows back without a reformat. In the past, my only solution was to get a motherboard with the same northbridge and hope windows would be able to boot so I could install the correct drivers.
In doing early searches i see you can use the command listsvc to see drivers available to enable or disable from recovery console, so it seems entirely possible to create a script of some sort that would modify your OS to go back to the same drivers it has on a 'first boot' situation (like right after an OS install from a generic XP cd.)
Unfortunately that all goes above my current knowingness so I thought I would check and see if anyone else has already cracked this puzzle or has any hints. Another avenue I'll have to check, does that UBCD4WIN have the option to uninstall drivers from the HD's OS?
Any and all help or participation is appreciated :D
