pc not booting with new hardware

  Scot_andy 10:15 27 Oct 04

i have recently changed the motherboard, processor and bought a new hard disk.
The problem is that when i try to boot using my old xp partition on my old hard disk (as i would normally do) and it wont go any further as to say it has encountered an error.
I figured i needed an xp pro cd, so i set it up to boot from cd and the setup program started without a hitch.

But, when excecuting the windows program at the end of this, it still shows the same error.

The error is:

the computer has shut down to protect the files of your computer.

it this is the first time you have seen this message, then please reboot. If this is not the first time you have seen this message please follow these instructions.

check for viruses, remove any newly installed hard disks and reboot..

What have i done wrong, and how can i fix this...
Thanks for your help guys

You will need to enter the hard drive details in BIOS. Press F1 whilst booting.

Does the new motherboard have a different chipset to the old motherboard, eg Via Ali SIS etc... If you can boot into safe mode and remove the motherboard drivers and change the IDE controllers to standard. You can remove the IDE controllers in the device manager, they will be re-installed when you boot up.

The other option is to do a repair installation and fit the second hard drive after when the pc has settled down.
