I'm new to upgrading major hardware pieces liek mobos and CPU's. So today I installed a Soyo KT333 Dragon lite mobo. And an Athlon AX 1800 266 fsb. A friend told me to uninstall all hardware components so I wouldn't have to reinstall windows. So I did. Now with new components installed I turn on comp and it gives me that crappy ass Blue screen after loading mobo screen and memory test. Saying it had prevented Windows from starting to not allow ahrm to be done to it. Possible causes are HD corruption. Now I think I need to reinstall windows or format my drive. But I can't. I put in a Windows XP boot disk and after awhile when starting up it gives me the message:

\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. Press any botton to exit.

So now I really can't find any way to reinstall Windows XP or format my C drive to get all hardware drives and all working. It's all really messed up. Any help would be appreciated.

Check your bios and disable any virus or bios monitors. Use a windows 98 bootdisk to delete your main partition before trying to load xp.
