Think i need to resinstall windows? ..not too sure..
Yes once you change the hardware especially motherboard and graphic cards you must reinstall the OS. It would be better if you format the harddisk completely(atleast the system drive) before using it.
So try to install windows again

Hi, trying to boot from your old drives is the problem.
The Boot sequence for your new board are different from the ol one. Your sequence to get your system going is to load the mobo drivers first, then run your XP disk again and at the second prompt select REPAIR this will run the same as a normal install but should save your existing data and settings.
One problem you may have is activating XP as Microsoft do not approve of multi installs and the new board will show as a different computer.
