Swaping mobo, help!

  1. Had to swap out most of my hardware to a new mobo. How do I get my Win XP Pro on my old harddrive to recognize the different mobo/chipset and boot, so I don't have to wipe and reinstall?

    Actually a format and reinstall is your best option. But you can do a repair install by booting from the XP CD and choosing repair. there is a guide here for how to do a repair install.
