Problem with replacing the motherboard and keeping my old hard drive

I just replaced my motherboard with brand new one and everything seems like it is working fine but it just won't read my window XP installation CD.

I've set CD-ROM drive as 1st boot device in BIOS.
And I do not have the back-up disk.

Replace hard drive motherboard

Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

I want to instal a windows XP SP3 on Foxconn 915 series with north bridgegrantsdale G-i915G with a IDE H.D.D (pata) and sata O.D.D,it seems that i need a floppy disk for raid driver,but i lost motherboard...

There are a couple options.
  • Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports IDE emulation mode. If it does turn it on and XP will install just fine.
  • Download and read about using nlite to incorporate sata drivers into an Windows XP installation disc. (You will need another working computer. Download nlite and insert the XP disc run nlite and select your CD as your windows install file location. Download generic sata drivers, intel has a bunch you can get for free. In the nlite menu to add drivers select folder option and select the folder with the drivers. Set anything else you want in nlite and burn the new XP disc. This disc will install just fine as it now has sata drivers.
Comment if you need further instruction.

I just bought Intel ATOM D425 MB. I installed winxp. Everything ok. But Network drivers not installed. In device manager it shows as unknown device. I searched the Intel site.They dont also have the LAN...

OF COURSE there are no Windows XP networking drivers for this Intel motherboard. WinXP was released in 2001; this motherboard wasn't even DESIGNED until XP had already been replaced by Windows Vista and Windows 7. Why would Intel ever bother to make drivers for an OLD operating system for NEW hardware?

You bought NEW hardware; you need a NEW operating system to make it work. If you want to use XP, you won't be able to do any networking with this system. If you want to be able to network this system, you'll need to buy a modern operating system for the modern hardware.

I know this isn't the answer you want to hear, but you also won't find Microsoft writing a NEW operating system to work with my OLD AMD 386DX-40 motherboard. Of course, you can always complain to Intel and Microsoft, but that won't change the reality. You have NEW hardware, which is great, but NO ONE is going to design and write NEW drivers for an OLD operating system to work with your new system.

Need nec versa e 6000 motherboard faulty . where i can buy the motherboard?

it is not worth it to purchase a new motherboard for around 200$ when you can buy a brand new computer for just a little bit more.

You can have your files moved from the old hard drive to the new laptop by a professional or you can do it yourself if you aren't a complete dummy with computers.

To do it yourself you would need to first remove the old hard drive from the old computer ( NEC ) and then buy a external hard drive case for it that fits to it - there are 2 sizes, 2.5" and 3.5", probably 2.5" hard drive and then there are 2 types of connectors, IDE and SATA. SATA has a flat connector, and IDE has around 40 metal pins sticking out of it.

buy the appropriate USB caseing for it and then connect it to your new computer, you can transfer your files from it to the computer, after you have done so, you can keep the old hard drive as a external hard drive, for backups for example.

Acer vt7500 with a s88m motherboard and xp pro The hard drive(40gb) is failing and I would like to know what I could replace it with (ie. largest size) and install xp. I do not need to save the old...

Your 40GB drive is an IDE ("Integrated Drive Electronics") drive.
The largest IDE drive ever manufactured is 500GB.
However, some motherboards do not support drives larger than 320GB.

Some disk-drives (Seagate/Maxtor) come with a CD-ROM of "tools" that enable you to copy "everything" from your "old" drive to your "new" drive.

I can't play any audio and video files

Is this new system? Make sure everything is sound in device manager. If it's not get latest drivers from manufactures website. If everything seems fine and this is new system you probably need to get "codecs". If system is running Windows XP try "nimo codec pack" or "xp codec pack" just google it, download install. restart your computer and everything should be fine. For other operation systems you need to do a little research on google. "video sound codecs Windows Vista" for example. Good Luck!
