BSod on booting into Windows

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I've come across a very problematic issue with my fathers rig.

It began as I turned on my pc, and no visual display came up, even though the pc was on.
The keyboard wasn't active, so it seemed to be an issue with the faulty motherboard (so i presumed, as CPU was fine, and with intergrated graphics chip)

I bought a new motherboard.
Also for referencing, I purchased the Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2P for him.
The computer then turned on fine, and tried booting to Windows, but then got the BSoD and restarted.
I troubleshooted by rerigging the computer with a different HDD, and it booted fine, however my fathers HDD would'nt on a different computer.

Ok. Corrupt HDD.

I plugged the HDD into my rig, and it was accessible to all the software inside. So naturally, I removed all important documents, so I could reformat his HDD (seemed like corrupt Windows files).

I've reformatted and installed Windows 7.

Eurika, it then primary booted on my rig when I put it as a master HDD rather than a slave. So it definitely works.

I've just plugged it into my fathers rig again, however the same problem exists. It boots to the Windows logo, but then it BSoD's, and I'm literally clueless as to what to do next...

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Your Father's HDD had all the wrong motherboar(ie for the old motherboard) drivers on it. That's why it wouldn't boot with the new motherboard.

When you installed Win7, Win7 installed the drivers for your motherboard. So, again, the wrong motherboard drivers for his motherboard.

No, you can't install drivers that are not for the motherboard that the HDD is installed in. You can only install drivers that match the motherboard.

The usual scenario when installing a new MB:
Fire it up and see if it posts and boots (well, that didn't work!)
Next, try a Windows "repair" install.
If that doesn't work, then it's a full install (backing up and then formatting recommended)

Try installing Win7 using your father's computer. I bet the problem will go away.
