Help getting XP to work on new computer
I just accidently fried the CPU on my previous system, so I bought a new barebones system (Motherboard, CPU, RAM), and transfered over everything else. I had heard elsewhere that I might be able to boot directly off the hard drive, even with the new system. Well, I tried it, and when it got the windows loading screen, instead of loading, the system restarts.
So I figured I would just pop in the XP CD, and do a repair installation. Well, I have tried it twice, and both times, right after it had restarted to boot into XP for "the first time," the blue screen of death popped up.
If you have not seen this message before, then restart blah blah blah
I am not sure what to do. Any information on how to get this installation to work would be very appreciated.
Thanks for any help.
