You Shouldn't install a Mobo like that!!.

The Motherboard will require different drivers,  to operate correctly,   Windows will be trying to load the incorrect drivers and fail as it can't find the corresponding Hardware.

you may be able to get into safe mode,  delete almost everything in the Device manager tree, reboot and let it detect everything.

still you may have problems getting in.

also there is copy protection software in Windows which should detect the major hardware change and ask you to activate again.

If this fails you may have to try a Win XP repair (not using recovery console) which should rebuild windows, detect all your hardware, whilst not loosing all your data (although you may have to re-install some of your applications (as they may become dis-associated with the Registry.)

If you can get the exact mobo you may replace it. No driver issue will raise. You can also buy a new mobo with same chipset and replace it. Same chipset mobo will require to install Sound, ethernet and vga drivers

If you have OC that motherboard, roll it back. The drives that you are using are dinosaurs compared to the motherboard. Legacy issues exist.

Failed Southbridge in MSI P6NGM mobo

Whenever changing out a MB, you run the risk of having to do a complete re-install of Windows. A few caveats: If you choose a MB with exactly the same chipset and integrated peripherals, then you may only need to update a few drivers. Sometimes a repair install will do the trick, but there's no way to know until you complete the upgrade.

I absolutely agree with your idea to clone your boot partition to another drive if possible, then use the cloned drive to test the move to the new MB and see what hurdles you encounter.

Best suggestion is exact model replacement of the MB in question. Check

Windows not loading


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Whenever Microsoft Windows XP is installed on a system, the OS is binded to the motherboard, specifically to the chipsets. I am assuming that when you replaced the motherboard, the OS was not reinstalled and it was still binded to the original Dell Dimension board, most likely an Intel 925X Express chipset. When the OS started to load, it could not find the original 925X chipset and instead finds itself confronted with Biostar VIA P4M900/VT8237A chipsets which is an unknown, hence the BSOD.

You could try:
  • boot from CD drive with an XP installer and use the second repair option;
  • boot into Safe Mode (F8) and try to uninstall the Intel devices entries (except the CPU) and allow the system to auto detect (if it will) the new hardware;
  • backup your files and perform a fresh/clean install on the new motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SATA Drivers for Hitachi HDD

Is there a BIOS setting to temporarily put the SATA controller into legacy mode? XP would then think it's an IDE drive. Then, after installing XP, install the drivers from the motherboard CD, then go back into the BIOS and turn off legacy mode.

Windows XP OEM OS

Yes, you have to purchase a new copy of Windows XP... Or alternatively you can try a freeware operating system such as UBUNTU. It does basically the same stuff your Windows did, just with a little more flair!

Crashing during Windows Setup

Check out any hardware that doesnot supports windows xp. remove that and reload the os. it works. or remove all the additional addon cards like modem, network card, printers etc., (just maintain only hard disk, cd rom and floppy drive)then install the os. once os installs add the components one by one to so that the os will detect one by one cheers!
