My mobo is Dead! so I had to go get a new one. so here is the issue: the HDD I have wont boot, BSOD, I crossed my fingers hoping this wouldn't happen, my luck it did. so now i'm curious, I cant even get into it in safe mode, and not sure any other way to get in to get the old mobo drivers off. Can I slave it and sift through the files? if so what ones would I need to remove? or is the drivers for the board buried

you need to use an sata or ide port that has native( onboard supported) drivers ie. a port that wyou dont need to install drivers for so it boots, you can also boot from a live cd such as bart pe or xp live edition etc...

Boot from the original Windows install disk and run a repair, it'll then re-detect all the hardware (you will probably have to re-activate).

Your best bet is to slave it and save important stuff, then reformat. as long as old drivers and registrys are in there you will continue to have issues.
