My prossessor died so i got a new one: CPU P4/2.8EGHz 800M 478P/1MB HT RT   i also got a new mobo while i was at it :MB EPOX| INTEL865 EP-4PDA2+ REV 2, then when i reinstall the hardware and power the computer up... it says NTsomething or other is missing please restart... so i put in my xp pro disk and set the bios to boot from cdrom first but it still doesnt change!  All i want to do is reformat my hdd and start working on my stuff again. or even better if i could  keep the stuff on my hdd and not have to reinstall everything. any help or sugessions would be very appetiated.
thanks
Jake
