New motherboard (different), now XP only works in safe mode.
Posted on 2011-03-25
It has been years since I swapped out a motherboard, and I obviously have forgotten some of the steps.
Completely new motherboard (everything different than old board: cpu, chipsets, memory, etc)
The board is installed and working. I was able to use "new Hardware Wizard" to identify new parts and used the motherboard manufacturer's CD as a source and was able to get all drivers loaded and "working properly."
Computer boots into Windows XP sp3 only in Safe Mode.
I have a lot of software applications loaded and do NOT want to reinstall Windows XP. (I would put the old motherboard back in before I would do that.)
To complete the installation, without reloading Windows, what are my next steps, please?
