New Motherboard Boot Loop

I just replaced the motherboard and cpu, on an xp machine of mine, and now it will not boot, it asks if I would like to boot to lastknown good confiuration or safe mode and then restarts in a loop. I think it has something to do with the difference in chipsets and drivers, because I went from a via chipset to an nvidia chipset, I would imagine their should be a tool to help this motherboard change without doing a repair install, any ideas is greatly appreciated.

First check in what mode new SATA controller works. If it's in AHCI mode, try to switch it to ATA mode.

Unfortunately the only way to do it would be to manually build your HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer), and then manually edit the registry. You're honestly better off doing the repair installation.

Sorry wrong link I wanted to post... Either should work though.... Better results with the latter though.

If you uininstall all the drivers before hand, and any related softwares, sometimes you can get lucky, and not have to do a repair......

But the OS has to be bootable prior to the change for this method to work.....

Before you continue to crack your head on the sidewalk with this one, have you tried setting the BIOS values to default settings?
