Mobo voltage & memory support? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Reformat/reinstall is the best option, though sometimes you can do a repair install (off of the bootable XP CD). Although I've never seen it attempted, I'd be curious to see if uninstalling all of the drivers (chipset, video, LAN, audio, etc.) prior to swapping mobos would increase the success rate of reusing an existing installation.

Well, I went ahead and used the Microsoft procedures for upgrading a motherboard instead or reformatting and reinstallation. So far so good! I'm still waiting for the bugs to show up.

I did a reconfiguration with these procedures about 2 years ago when I put an Intel 865GLC board in a Gateway PC I had at the time. That system ran good for me then so I figured I'd give it another shot.

The worst part of the day was trying to bleed the air out of the water cooling I finally installed.

Glad that stuff is over. Now I just need to work this rig over to maximize it's stability and performance.



Oh, yeah! I followed the listed procedures in my last post to a T. Still had to reactivate windows (3 day period due to - "The system has had a significant change since the last time windows was registered" message). I did not delete any drivers whatsoever. My Catalyst driver is still in place. Haven't been up and running long enough to come across any errors, yet!
