I get to the boot in safe mode screen and it wont go any further because of security reasons. I would try the cd for my other comp but idk if it will transfer the liscense and shut me out of the one im on rite now when both comps get online. Anyone know how to do this and can walk me through it or have a site with instructions?
You done this all wrong.But why did you change mbd's ?
It's best to change mbd/cpu as a team.That might be your mistake.
But you say you installed Windows so your cdrom works.
What doesn't ?
