You'll need to reinstall Windows. Or do a repair install, boot from your XP
disk and follow instructions.

Normally, and assuming a retail license (many OEM installations are
not transferable to a new motherboard - check yours before starting),
unless the new motherboard is virtually identical (same chipset, same
IDE controllers, same BIOS version, etc.) to the one on which the WinXP
installation was originally performed, you'll need to perform a repair
(a.k.a. in-place upgrade) installation, at the very least:

How to Perform an In-Place Upgrade of Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/directo...;EN-US;Q315341

The "why" is quite simple, really, and has nothing to do with
licensing issues, per se; it's a purely technical matter, at this point.
You've pulled the proverbial hardware rug out from under the OS. (If
you don't like -- or get -- the rug analogy, think of it as picking up a
Cape Cod style home and then setting it down onto a Ranch style
foundation. It just isn't going to fit.) WinXP, like Win2K before it,
is not nearly as "promiscuous" as Win9x when it comes to accepting any
old hardware configuration you throw at it. On installation it
"tailors" itself to the specific hardware found. This is one of the
reasons that the entire WinNT/2K/XP OS family is so much more stable
than the Win9x group.

As always when undertaking such a significant change, back up any
important data before starting.

This will also probably require re-activation, unless you have a
Volume Licensed version of WinXP Pro installed. If it's been more than
120 days since you last activated that specific Product Key, you'll most
likely be able to activate via the Internet without problem. If it's
been less, you might have to make a 5 minute phone call.

copy,delete the partition,create one,then xp installs auto.



Still trying to sabotage people, I see.

K...
As I'm sure you've noted from the responses you rec'd, a Repair installation
of XP is ordinarily required after a motherboard change and this may be the
appropriate route for you at this time; however, Microsoft recently
(3/30/05) published an interesting article on replacing a motherboard -- see
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;824125

The article details a simplified process (obviating the Repair install) that
presumably results in the XP OS recognizing a new motherboard. This article
was just brought to my attention and I haven't had a chance to try it out.
Two scenarios are involved -- one where the existing motherboard works and
the other where you're replacing a failed motherboard. I would guess at this
point the latter scenario would apply to your situation.
