I am upgrading from Asus A7v133 to A7n8x-e Deluxe
Ideally I would like to remove WIN ME all together and be able to have my
winxp hard drive be the primary IDE master, be able to clean off the drive
and use it for storage
Also my boot.ini looks like this....
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP
"C" drive is plugged into Pri IDE and has Win ME on it...
"D" is plugged into Pri IDE (second connector) <storage only>
"E" is plugged into Pri ATA 100 Port and has Win XP on it
"F" is a DVDRW drive and is plugged into Sec ATA 100 Port
This is a multi boot system with Win ME being the origional OS
I install WIN XP on a new drive "e" and it is the only OS I use anymore.
When i connect these drives to the new motherboard WIN XP wont boot.....WIN
ME still will but like I said I never use it.
I connected the drives in the new mobo like this
C and D was plugged into PRI IDE
E and F was plugged into SEC IDE
when multi boot comes up if you select Start normally it runs for about 30
secs then reboots on its own if you run it in safe mode it will load about
25-30 drivers then reboot on its own....as i said it will run WIN ME
normally. Please advise on how to get this up and running
