I have recently installed a new Motherboard but It has come with a few problems. Firstly It wouldn't turn on properly with my 2 ram sticks. I had to take one out just for it to actually load. After doing a start up repair and eventually a factory restore I thought things would be sorted but unfortunately i constantly come across a a blue screen before the login screen. It promptly restarts and I am back to square one. Any help would be fantastic and I am a bit of a rookie when it comes to computers to bare with me
Was your boot drive previously connected to a different motherboard on which the SATA ports were set to IDE instead of AHCI? If so, then set the SATA controller to IDE mode. You'll be able to change it to AHCI once you can boot and perform a modification to the registry.
Ok so basically I pulled my graphics card too hard on my previous motherboard and part of the motherboard was damaged because of it. Ridiculous I know. Ill copy and paste the specs that I have been able to find for my old motherboard. Form factor: Micro-ATX, Manufacturer: Pegatron, Chipset: Intel H67, Memory sockets: 4 x DDR3. My new motherboard is Asrock H77 Pro4-M. Sorry if these details are lacking.
You had an OEM motherboard and you installed a different motherboard. Since the chipset is very similar, it should work unless your copy of Windows is tied to the OEM motherboard. If setting the SATA controller to IDE mode didn't help and you already performed a factory restore (a clear indication of an OEM system), then try to fix the boot record: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392
Ultimately you may have to reinstall from a non-OEM DVD.
I managed to do something similar to what you have said, but it says I have no windows installed on my system. But when I use the CD that I created from the iso image from Digital River, it says there is a windows 7 on the partition.
You need to read and follow the instructions, but there are no guarantees that it will work for you. It would definitely be easier to perform a fresh install or replacing the original motherboard with an identical one.
