Greetings

I have bought a new motherboard to support my new Gtx 970 which the oem motherboard doesn't support, additionally I bought a 2tb Seagate hardrive.
After installing all the new hardware I was unable to get any video output so I removed the Gtx 970 and got a signal through the motherboard VGA. I tried to launch windows from the old HDD and it freezes at the point the 4 RGBY dots appear on the screen and then will reboot asking me if I want to start windows normally or launch startup repair. I have no System images and want to keep the data on my HDD so startup repair doesn't seem too helpful.
I've also retried booting windows with the new HDD unplugged, swapping sata ports and only 1 stick of ram to no avail.

Here is the computer: http://support.hp.com/za-en/document/c03000665
The new Mobo: http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4150#ov

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Jack

Power on you Computer and keep tapping F8 key till Advanced Boot Option menu displayed select Safe Mode if Windows Boot into Safe Mode then follow instructions at youtube video clip to uninstall all drivers related to old motherboard. Windows Installation Service is responsible for the installation and uninstallation procedure. If you try to access it in Safe Mode you will get the following message: “The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. Use SafeMSI program to enable Windows Installation Service .

Can access Advanced Boot Option menu, Safe mode loads in all files (presumably), screen blinks and takes me back to bios logo then to windows error recovery menu.

The only reason Windows will not boot because old device drivers for your old motherboard installed and Windows trying to boot your computer with these old motherboard drivers. You can remove third party drivers with Dism command i never try this myself while Windows offline but if you want you can follow my instructions at my tutorial link is below. You can also view all installed device drivers on offline Windows with DISM /Image:C:\  /Get-Drivers /all  /Format:list command.

You should check out the descriptions of each driver you want to uninstall and yes you can export the driver listed by Dism command but you can only uninstall one at time by typing each drivers name yourself. Bellow command will export the drivers listed by Dism to file named Drivers.txt which will be store at X: USB drive.

DISM /Image:C:\  /Get-Drivers /all  /Format:list  > X:\Drivers.txt

I have no idea which drivers need uninstalling, do you know which ones are likely to be stopping windows from booting from the new mobo? Or do you know which drivers are crucial to windows? If so I could google each driver to see their purpose/producer? Regardless here is the text file :)

The first two and other random driver I tried uninstalling all produce the message:

Deployment Image Serving and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7601.18489

Found 1 driver packages to remove.
Removing 1 of 1 - nvraid.inf: Error - the specified driver cannot be removed. Removing a default driver package is not supported.

Error: 50

The request is not supported.

The DISM log file can be found at X:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

I just wanted to ask if you replaced the PSU on the HP. The computer comes with a 300W PSU and installing a GTX 970 is pushing it to the limit. Nvidia recommends a 500W PSU for this card.

Okay, no need for the specs. 750W is fine. It's hard to tell one's experience on the forum. I just wanted to add to make sure you are using two PCIe power plugs for this card which you no doubt have done. 

 

Haven't see a mug shot of Ned Kelly in awhile.  :)
