all the hardware is in place, mobo, new vid card, cpu, etc. and all are working fine.
heres something i had not done before that is making an issue: instead of buying a new OS cd and a new HDD, i decided to recycle a HDD from my old HP machine that runs windows XP. I would like to keep all of the data on the drive so i decided to make this my main drive for my new machine. sounded easy enough.
however, when windows XP begins and gets to its loading screen it will blue screen for a split second each time and restart. i was able to get into safe mode and install all of the mobo drivers. i was hoping that would fix the issue but it has not. obviously to me this is just the HDD freaking out do to a massive hardware change, but this shouldnt be a very big issue. What is the best coarse of action to take here?
much appreciated as always!!!
