18 months ago i changed to a NF7S motherboard.
I booted from the exiting old disk and I didn't have to re-install anything because someone told me that if you change the driver for the HDD, to "generic" i think, BEFORE you do your last shutdown on your old motherboard it doesn't scrabble everything during your first boot on the new motherboard.
However i cant remember how i did this! any ideas?
It all worked great and it still is.

If you change motherboards and have XP, the OS doesn't always like it.

Repairing XP from first bootup (set to boot from CD-ROM in the Bios and have the disk in the drive) avoids any problems and retains all your configuration, programs, applications etc.
