so i switched my AMD 965 processor out for an intel i7 870 and now the system i swapped the AMD into won't boot is this some driver issue? cause if i switch the harddrives it works fine so im thinking intel and amd have things installed into windows to allow it to boot with their products?
cpt, from his 2 system configurations, cinnaman is obviously talking about CPU's and their matching motherboards. You obviously cannot interchange AMD and Intel CPU's if only because AMD chips have pins and Intel chips do not.
Cinnaman can do repair to each OS with xp proceed as if doing a new instal until xp searches for and finds privious windows installations and will ask do you want to repair select yes to set for the new Mobo setting if you are not ask to repair it will be new install. or with Viista or Win 7 the window after selecting Language low left coner select repair my computer the select startup repair. apologies for assuming
