Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot System
After installing new motherboard, I am unable to get my computer to boot. I am also having trouble getting my computer to boot from the CD rom so that I can run my setup CD that came with my motherboard. BIOS settings all look correct, post beep, everything seems fine, but I can not get Windows XP to boot.I get to the point that I get the message to start normally, safe mode, ect. Then the computer restarts. I've been unable to boot from floppy & CD rom
Re: Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot...
Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..
Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.
Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.

Offcourse! first of all insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.
2nd way, If everything could not be possible then you should boot from CD again then select your CD drive and type a command fdisk and press y or enter 2 times. Now you choose 4 number and press enter and check the drive format if it is not FAT32 its mean that you should press 3 and then press 4 and now press enter then press escape. Then press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot now once again Boot from CD and choose CD drive and type fdisk and choose 1 then choose1 and now press enter and once again press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot. Once again boot from CD and select your CD drive and now you can install windows 98 now insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.

if some problem not unable to install xp install firts the SATA driver ,, download first from the internet the drive sata then put in flopy drive...install this firts before you install the os xp..
your HDD may be bad. I have had a number of HDD that appear fine in the BIOS but won't format either via the install disk or separately via a Linux boot disc.(You can somtimes hear them clicking on and off [seeking])
If you are mad keen on the drive, then D/L 'Hirens Boot Disc' and boot into the DOS mode (it also has a Mini XP mode).and use the HDD format utlity 'killdisk'. This will remove anything on the drive, format it and set it up ready for a fresh install.
If Hirens Boot Disk can't see the SATA drive then its stuffed.. for sure..
Boot from your WinXP CD and repair your existing installation. That is the component that controls security on your computer. When done with the repair and you can boot into your operating system again, you should do a full virus scan on the computer since there are several viruses that can cause this problem.
insert xp bootable cd hit delete or F2 to enter setup while starting computer select boot priority or first boot device as "cd rom" exit saving changes. boot only 1 time from cd and then follow the installation wizard steps.
