Hi,

To my knowledge, Windows XP upon installation marries itself to the chipset of the motherboard, hence changing motherboard would result to a looping BSOD (blue screen of death).

A way around this is to use an OEM Windows XP installer and choose the second repair option wherein Windows will not partition, format or delete the previous installation but reinstall most of the device drivers and other significant registry entries, dll files and others. A word of caution though, you should create a new user name aside from the administrator account and your former user account. It is very possible that if you use your old user account, Windows will over write the old and your files would be gone.

Just to be safe, do a backup of your critical files on a separate medium such as a DVD/CD or a flashdrive.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
If you change the MB you will definitelly need to re-install XP cause if you leave it just as is, the windows will try to "connect" to your settings of the old MB to the new one, because all drivers are stored in your system, so it will not work and will render your os unusable and will definitely result in a bluescreen.
