I have been trying to set up a simple desktop computer for my office out of spare parts. I installed XP professional on a SSD and then moved the drive to another MB to try it and the CPU it has on it. The drive would not work on that MB, so I moved the drive back to the original MB. Now it will not make it past the post screen there.
I had XP Pro. installed on a old HD and it would work on either MB.
Is it going to be a headache trying to swap around and assemble the best components? Should I not swap parts around, but assemble what should be the best and "then" install the OS?
