Hi

I've changed my PIII MB to a P4P800-E Deluxe.
But I don't will re-install WinXP _and_ all my dozens of other programms.
:-(

W/o a re-installation WinXPpro can't recognize, that my P4 or the MB can
Hyper-threading.
So the Device Manager under Computer doesn't says 'ACPI Multiprocessor PC',
it says ACPI-PC.

There's a way to change the HAL (DLLs) to 'ACPI Multiprocessor PC'?
I know it exists a KB article to do this for Win2000, but there's no article
who describes the same for WinXP.

TIA

If you really don not want to reinstall XP after having changed your
motherboard, then I can safely say that you can look forward to loads of
Registry errors on your system in the years ahead.

Boot from the XP CD and choose the second repair option. It will re-install
Windows, but leave your programs, etc installed. You'll have to re-install
any third party drivers and run Windows Update to get all the latest
updates.

I can't boot from the XP CD any more. :-(
There's an other way to repair?

No other way that I know of.

'Not any more' implies you could boot from the cd before - if so, you
should still be able to do so. Just make sure the cd-rom drive is listed
before the hard drive in the list of boot devices in the BIOS.

If you can't boot from the cd at all, you can simply install the repair
console on the hard disc. Put the XP cd in the drive, select Start, Run and
type
X:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons
where X is the cd-rom drive letter.
The next time you start the computer (and every time from now on, or until
you remove the repair console), you will be asked what you want to do:
start Windows XP or start the Repair console.

I've changed the CD-ROM device by 2 others.
It doesn't helps. :-(

The boot sector should be ok.
Virus scanners doesn't found any boot sector virus.
chkdsk or scandisk says it's all ok.

Why can WinXP access the hd drive but at booting from the winxp cd rom it
can't?!
Or doesn't knows the winxp cd the new IDE chipset from Intel ->ICH5R?

Re-formatting the hd drive?
In 1 or 2 month I'll buy a new drive, than I'll have a new formatted drive.
