Question about EliteGroup P6IWP-Fe Motherboard
I need to replace the mobo on my machine.
It has an Elitegroup P6IWP-FE Socket 370 with either i810 or i810e, can't remember if it was the e chipset or not.
I don't want to reinstall windows, so I was hoping to run the gambit and try to let windows redetect a new mobo and hope it takes it.
Problem is, I've been having a hard time to find a replacement for that particular motherboard that would do the trick.
Any suggestions on a course of action?
It's a much needed machine, and to start from scratch would be a very difficult thing to do at this point.
I also know that my other option is to slave the HD and salvage everything on it, on a new system as a sort of compromise.
Okay, the problem here is that there is no guarantees when hottswaping motherboards. First It helps if the mboard your swap to is of the same manufacturer thus this eliminates some driver identification problems with XP. Second the socket set (as you said PGA370) must be the same. Then VGA setup must be the similar as in, if its onboard on the first mboard it must be onboard for the second mboard. Otherwise you should be fine. Another option that you did not mention is creating a second partition on the harddrive and installing XP with any other motherboard onto that pertition you created. That way you can just simply copy you information across when you are running with your new mboard (this may be your best option) . Let me know how you go. Thanks
