Incorrect, The Chipset Drivers will be different, this can cause the PC to BSOD or halt. If by IDE you mean South Bridge, you are only halfway there - there are many other components on a modern mobo which can cause problems, SI raid, Nic, Audio, USB etc.Originally Posted by jcdillin
You are correct.But I don't see what that has to do with the blue screens. The reason why it is blue screening is because when you install xp on a computer its installed specifically for that computer setup and when you change it to another setup ex. different front side bus speeds, different chipset it will cause errors. Correct me if im wrong
Not always true, I have swapped an Nforce Based system to a Via board and had it boot and work fine (well to a point of being able to install the 4in1)You are suppose to a full reinstall if you are using a different chipset. Usually if you have an installation of windows working on one motherboard and you swap it to another board you will get blue screens.
Generally however you should perform a recovery on the system to ensure windows copies the required drivers from the CD, this will NOT overwrite your settings, or cause you to loose your installed programs.
If your feeling hardcore you could attempt to boot to safe mode and manually uininstall all you system devices before attempting to install all the new drivers indivdually.
The uber genius that thought of this is leetness.
Try this excellent idea this should work
Seriously folks, this is the method used in the industry to recover ghost images to different chipsets, it takes about 10 minutes tops and works every time.
