you might need to reformat, as changing motherboards and all of the drivers it used before for the old motherboard are still in the OS. just boot from cdrom and reformat. or try a repair. to get into windows and save what files you want. then reformat.

Having a Major hardware change will cause your Current OS to crash so to speak. As your current OS has a registry DATABASE and drivers of old hardware it cant correctly contact your Current Motherboard making your system unstable. You will need to Re-install Windows.

There is a way around it but its to late now.

Try a repair first.

It may work however alot of the time as its another OS your OS on your PC will most likely request it be formatted..However give it a go anyway.

i also have this hard drive case that alows you to take an external drive and make it a usb drive. Could I just try doing that after its all started up?

My wife has a habit of stealing my computer if hers doesnt work. SO i need to get it working tonight.
