transfer of old hdd to new pc as master possible without windows reinstall?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i'm moving my old hard drive from my old amdk6-2 cpu to a celeron mobo with a 733. everything works but when i try booting into windows it gives me the blue screen every time .... even with safe mode or dos. is there anything i can do to avoid a reinstall .... the os on the hdd is winxp and i have done this before without a reinstall when i moved from this old celeron board to my new sempron. any ideas?

You will probably need to uninstall all chipset drivers, network card drivers, video card drivers, drivers for everything else and then you can try.

ive done it before, you will probably want to reinstall all drivers though as they might not work with your new stuff.
