If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.
start with a minimum system. just enough to boot the machine. no nsound or modem or nic'sw unle3ss they're integrated. use all like memory.. preferably 1 chip. update the bios to the latest greatest version. speaking of which. what windows r u running? nt4, y2k , xp home, xp pro , xp enterprise, vista? ne way attempt to boot with just the hard drive.. dont attach any other cables.. (floppy, cd. etc) if you can boot into the system add the other items to the system one by one rebooting each ntime with each new item. you'll find the device thats causing the problem..if it's a hardware issue. if it does the reboot it may well be the os.. try safe mode... i know for example y2k and my p4 wouldnt let a diamond stealth s540 video and the creative labs pci 64 sound card be in the same system.. they locked it or blue screened it everytime.. or it'd reboot.. anyway..good luck..
this is a problem complexing situation because here are involved more than one device that causing this, if you have time and parts to experiment is a good think, you have to take out from your board cpu ram and vga-s and put in their place a second component(take from your friend or if you know that guy in service maybe halping you with parts so even him is taking experience of this situations). after testing your Mb with second components if it working fine no shut downs no crahes, then problem is in one of other components, try it taking out second parts one by one eny time, replacing with your components. begin with vga(or vga-s if you have more than one but is better to put it and prove them one by one to diagnose if their have problems) after doing this and you didnt finded problem in vga/s let your part in place and change second ram taht you puted with yours(if have more than a module prove it one by one each time reboting system after each one.) if even in your ram you dont have problems, so change cpu/s. one of this components without dubt is faulty.
if problem resolved and you dont have more problems and didnt find a faulty component and your pc is working fine so it was a miss making.
try all experiments with mother board outside case. some time shrt circuit of Mb with case is causing problem, after try it in case if you dont finded problems, in any way that i told you up.
check yourt power supply waltage and earthing.
also try toi start computer with only mother bord and smps in out of the cpu cabinet.
then check .also disconnect har ddisk and then checxk u get disaply from mothe rbnord.
Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.
