A Dell may or may not work. Some Dell's are generic XP and some are proprietary.

Please zipperman, If you have nothing to contribute other than negative bullshit stay away. You just cause the helpers to come back to a post for no reason. Thx.

I don't think that it will work now per because he already swapped drives and tried to run windows. More than likely windows will continue to shut down on him till he reactivates it.

You could start over again and put the old mobo in and then try my procedure. Hope it works out.
Let us know what you do for further reference. Thx.
