I just built a AMD 1800+ its on a kt333 RU m-board Everything seems to be operational except the HDD (maxtor EIDE 40gb), even though I was able to format it for use with the IDE RAID the cpu wont boot from it,its the primary boot device and it works in my old HP. its got XP professional and i dont have the recovery disc. Every time it boots it comes up with a code error - windows has dicovered a problem and has shut itself down to avoid damaging your system- or something to that effect. Im thinking the heatsink may have partially crushed the processor in shipment but am really hoping to find an easier (and cheaper) solution.
PLEASE HELP!!
Thanks

Do you have a backup of your current system?  You need to start fresh and install XP.  It will not go from one hardware setup to another without reinstalling it.
Put it back in your other computer and back up whatever data is important.  Now put it in the new machine and start with FDISK and FORMAT to start with a fresh drive.  Then install XP, reinstall all programs and restore the data.
