So I had trouble with my computer which lead me to replacing my heatsink and Mobo. This was based on advice given in my previous thread:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic470629.html

Upon replacing my mobo I couldn't get video until I switched my mobo to SLI mode (even though I don't use two GPUs) now I cannot get windows to work. The boot works up until the very begining of the windows boot process. I see the windows logo with the undulating bar under it very briefly before the computer restarts. I get the same response when using safe mode. THe computer consists of the following components:

CPU: (939-pin) AMD Athlon64 3500+
MOTHERBOARD: (Sckt939)Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro-SLI nForce4 pro SLI Chipset
MEMORY: 1024 MB Corsair XMS High Performance Memory
VIDEO: NVIDIA Geforce 7800 GT 256MB 16X PCI Express Video Card
HDDs: Hitachi 160GB 7200RPM Serial ATA 150 8MB Cache/Western Digital 500GB
OS: Windows XP Version 5.1 SP3

The previous Mobo was the very similar GA-K8N Ultra-SLI

Your best bet after replacing a motherboard is a clean install. It's possible a repair install will work - if you want to try follow the instructions below. But if it doesn't work you'll be relegated to a format and clean install.

Boot to the XP CD and choose the SECOND repair option, allowing XP to install on top of itself. After completion you'll need to go to Windows Update and download & install all updates (except for hardware & driver related updates, which should never be downloaded from Windows Update - only from the OEM websites). Here is a clear tutorial on how to perform a repair install: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/138-how-to-repair-windows-xp/

Windows repair install asked me to put in a disk called 'SRCDATA'. I figured it was mobo drivers but it did not recognize any relevant drivers on my "NVIDIA nforce4 series Utility CD." So I pressed cancel. (Note: this utility CD came with my previous Mobo; methinks they use the same chipsets etc but dunno for sure.)

anyways the repair install proceeded. I left during the end of the procedure so I don't totally know what happened but I assume it finished.

At any rate it is still doing the same thing; restarting during windows boot.

Before I reformat I do need to get some data off the HDD with the windows install (and the other HDD too but it won't be requiring a reformat methinks.)

But yes, you may want to consider a format and reinstall - your best bet after a new mobo.

So I tried the repair install again. I found out that the file it's looking for is called nvatabus. I looked on the contents of my NVIDIA nforce4 series Utility CD and found a NvAtaBus.sys in D:\Chipset\nVIDIA\XP\IDE\WinXP. But when I try to use this file I get the following warning:

The Software you are installing for this Hardware:

NVIDIA nforce4 ADMA Controller

has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP.

Continuing your installation of this software may impair or destabilize the correct operation of your system either immediately or in the future. Microsoft strongly recommends that you stop this installation now and contact the hardware vendor for software that has passed Windows Logo testing

Do you want to continue installing the software for this hardware?


Note that this disk came with my previous mobo which was very similar to the one I have but not exactly the same. I'd really like to avoid reformatting until i get my data.

Any suggestions as to where I could get this file? All the driver Downloads I find are .exe filetypes.

what if I got another mobo that is the exact same model? Would I have to reformat then?

what if I install the old Mobo (with leaking transistors)? Could I get my data then?

I really need to get some data of this HDD and might not be able to get it without running windows.

If the new motherboard is the same as the old then no, you should not have to reformat. As for getting data off the hd, you can either slave it to another system or install a new instance of Windows on the same drive in parallel with the the old installation, retrieve the data, then reformat and start from scratch.

(almost) Victory! After almost a month. Windows is now working on this machine and I am posting this from it.

but it is running super slow. Scrolling on this page is clipping and haltering for example and I was greeted by a message telling me that windows shut down from a critical error (or something). It was related to my video card. Here's a minitool box dump:

More info:

So in Device Manager, under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers, there is a NVIDIA nforce4 ADMA Controller and two unknown devices. If I Update the driver for either of those two unknown devices, I get the prompt

The File 'nvatabus.sys' on SRCDATA is needed

and asks me for a path where that file is located.

Further problems:
My DVD-tray is not showing up in windows.
My second HDD is a master and needs to be slaved. Don't remember how to do this.

Your problems appear to stem from the fact that you replaced the motherboar...with a different board...and are attempting to use the hard drive reflecting drivers/settings from the former motherboard.

As previously stated, this does not work. By design, Windows loaded with specific hardware...will not work properly when key hardware items (read "motherboard" is replaced with another. This helps to prevent piracy and illegal installs of Windows from one bona fide system...to another system.

Until this iz addressed (via a clean install and activation), you will have problems that no one can assist you in overcoming.
