Question about Dell (E210882) Motherboard
It is probably asking you to insert an XP disk, as Windows XP will need to install the new drivers for your new motherboard. It will also give you the option to select a folder (this is what you are seeing) already on your hard drive that would contain the proper drivers for that motherboard. Chances are this folder does not contain the proper drivers. You will need an XP disk to install these drivers. Boot with the XP disk in, and chances are Windows will take care of everything else. If you do not have the XP disk you used to originally install Windows on that machine, then you can use a seperate PC to get the drivers required. You will need to visit the website of the manufacturer (I believe emachines is your new mobo?) and download the drivers. Then save them to disk. When booting into your new system, make sure this new disk (you made from other pc) is in the drive, and then select that drive when it asks you for the folder you are talking about. This will then install the proper drivers and you will be up and running shortly. Hope this helps :)
