XP computer died due to a motherboard issue.
I purchased a GA-78LMT-USB3 Gigabyte MB.

Trying to do an inplace repair with old drive.

DVD and HD are SATA.

Setting, in BIOS, controller to AHCI and the DVD cannot be booted to and thus I cannot start an inplace repair.
Setting the controller to Native IDE allows me to boot to DVD and initiate the repair process, but upon restart the computer keeps rebooting.
I have tried the F6 option of installing drivers.
