Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 will not boot with wireless card installed.
Actually it is media center version 2005 installed from factory, touchpad & USB ports all quit & I changed the motherboard. It would not boot past "Windows Starting" or boot from original CD & says "Setup is starting Windows". It will stay there for 2 days, never moves.
Take the wireless card out & boots fine. Have tried 2 additional wireless cards, working in other laptops. Same problem. :sleep:

have you installed the software / drivers BEFORE putting in the card and booting?

The software was on the hard drive prior to motherboard change. I have attempted to re-install it but the computer will only start without the wireless card & software install says "No Adapter found".
