Question about Mach Speed (MSNV-939) Motherboard
Have recently upgraded my computer with MachSpeed MSNV-939 motherboard and AMD 3800+ Dual Core CPU and a brand new fan hoping to bump up the performance significantly...I had a dual-boot Windows XP and Linux Fedora environments - both were booting up OK Before upgrdae... Now, AFTER upgrade I was consistently getting and boot error message right after "Updating DMI pool data..." booter message - DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER... when I am doing that - it boots up newly installed Windows XP and things seem to work OK - all disks (C: and other logical drives) are visible to File Explorer and other apps ... I even ran utilities like FIXMBR and FIXBOOTSECT - but after that the **** Boot loader still gives me the message above. Any ideas what to do BESIDES "buy new harddrive" - mine is just 2 years old and was working PERFECTLY before the upgrade. Many thanks in advance! ++DAN
You can run a disk manager for your drive however, I'll bet you will find its windows boot.ini. It may read just fine for a dual boot system but think about this. Windows can get confused real quick. I'm talking about the regestry. Take the time and do a fresh install of your Linuex and than re-install windows "clean install". I'll bet everything works out just fine. When 1 changes MB's there is a whole list of new drivers PCI devices loading into windows. Your system will run better with one copy of drivers for your new board and windows will not carry a list of old drivers and PCI devices of your old board.
