Question about Intel Motherboard
Hi achmadjanupe, please include in this post the manufacture & model number of your new motherboard. (That will help a lot).
You must first clear the cmos by moving the cmos jumper to clear & wait at least 10 seconds, than move the jumper back to normal. (See your manual for this).
After installing a new motherboard & CPU it is not uncommon for windows not to boot & you will not hear a POST beep. Try removing your system memory & reseating it. If you have an AGP or PCI-Express video card, do the same. If you are using the same hard disk drive from the older MB & CPU you'll have to do a fresh install of windows, (Including a format of your hdd). Its a very bad idea to install newer drivers over old drivers for a newer board.
The only exception to this would be if the new motherboard is exactly the same as the old motherboard. Once you gain display, go directly into the bios & make sure your hdd is listed in the boot order.
If your hard disk drive is large enough. You can add a new partition within the free space of your drive & install your new windows onto that partition. When you boot to your windows CD follow the instructions on screen to create a new partition within the free space of your hdd. By doing this you'll be able to save all the old data within your old windows drive. You'll be able to copy & past your old data over to your new installation. Once all your data has been copied to your new windows you can delete the old windows & old partition by booting again with the windows CD. Windows can delete the old partition.
There is far too much information, drivers & registry information already in windows. If you try to run your old windows with the new board it will go crazy & you’ll have nothing but trouble.
Good luck achmadjanupe!
This will take some time to complete.
I'm sure you may have more questions, post them here.
