This is driving me nuts. I recently upgraded my computer with a new motherboard and processor so I could give Windows 10 a try.
I had been using an old Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard and upgraded it to a AMD Bulldozer FX-8120.
The problem is that although I can understand that there might be a compatibility issue preventing me from installing Windows XP using the new motherboard. It starts to install Windows XP but half way through I get the blue screen of death and that ends the installation.
But when I format that drive and try to install Windows 7 all I get is NTDR is missing.
If I go back to the old Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard with the same formatted drive it installs Windows 7 without any problem at all.
Why is that?
To tell you the truth I expected the new motherboard to install anything including Windows XP, just like my old motherboard.
