Got hit by lightning, had to buy a new MOBO. New MOBO has PCI Express and he says his old factory-licensed XP (pre SP2) software won't load because PCI Express is only recognized by SP2 or later. He now thinks he needs a 'slipstream' boot CD (w/SP2 or SP3 already integrated) to get past this problem.
Isn't there a way to disable the PCI Express on the MOBO via the BIOS so his pre-SP2 software will load, or is he right in needing the 'slipstream' disk. If the 'slipstream' is needed, where's the best procedure?
