  1. Ok i got a new mobo today, Asus a8v XE because i got a free 7600gt pci-e. I had an a8v deluxe with AGP radeon. Everything worked fine except when i tried to boot windows It would not, tried to repair windows by booting from XPcd and got PCI.sys error. After reading your other threads about this i understand what happened. My question is can i upgrade my installed windows to SP2 when running that drive as a slave. I can access the drive on someone else's computer but just wanted to upgrade my windows to sp2 without formatting. Drive will not boot on another computer now. but only run as slave. Thanks

    No is the simple answer...

    When changing motherboards, it is always highly recommended to start with a fresh install of Windows
