new mobo and cpu

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I installed xp sp3 as a test on my computer since i got a new mobo and processor. My computer shows the new bios screen, but then goes to my old bios screen and says "please press f1 CPU failure" or something like that. So im guessing i need to wipe my hard drive clean...how must i do this? btw im going to be installing vista sp1 on the drive once its wiped.

Normally after making a big change (like a mobo) you will have to reformat and reinstall...it's just the way it normally works.

Yeah he is right. Windows incorporates itself and its drivers into the motherboard and visa versa.
When changing the mortherboard, windows keeps drivers in all kinds of places, some you will never be able to find and uninstall or relocate.
Its a process all us system builders have gotten used to.
When replacing a mobo. windows must be reinstalled and replaced also.
Good luck

Sometimes you get really really lucky...like going from a 680i to a 780i (same brand) where many of the drivers are the same...but 95% of the time it takes a reinstall.

Pop your Vista DVD in, boot it up, and format the hard drive at the appropriate screen.

You have to have a BIOS to boot your computer! What are you trying to do?
