Recently my machine had a catastrophic hardware failure and I have basically had to replace alot. New Mobo, CPU, PCI-e graphics card, memory but same HDDs, Sound Card and Wifi Card and PSU.
It went from a dual Xeon HT, AGP Nvidia Graphics gard, 1gig ram to a dual core AMD 2.2ghz, 2gig ram, PCI-E Nvidia Graphics card. I have removed the Sound card and the Wifi card for the minute and disabled all onboard item such as Nvidia Lan and Realtek Audio, also disabled things like AMD Cool'n'Quiet. Also the new motherboard is SLI compatable, and the old one wasn't. Both the new motherboard and the old motherboard are Asus.
Now I have done an XP Repair, but its not enough, some of my old drivers are still causing it to kmode upon boot up, its kmodes once it goes to display the "Loading Windows" Logo. But in Safe mode it can get to the stage where it will show a desktop and a messagebox. But alas I get the "Windows Setup can not run is SafeMode, I will reset now "
I have also tried putting it into VGA mode upon boot up, but to no avail.
Is it possible for me to stop the XP setup to let me enter safemode, remove all the devices in device manger and then let it run setup?
Thanks for you help.
