  • BSOD on XP when changing MB

    Hi All,

    I upgraded my computer to gigabyte MB (kv800vm) from an from Intel one (P3).
    When I boot up the comp I get the BSOD whit this error:
    stop 0x0000007b (0x0f79d1528....)
    I followed this article but it didn't worked...

    strange thing, I searched for the Intelide.sys in the Driver.cab and didn't find it. also no fond in the fresh XP install...
    Also, if I try to reinstall windows dose not recognize the old installation and start a fresh new install.
    PS: This XP is a WIN2k upgrade, so the files are located in \winnt
    also, the fresh install work fine.

    How can I resolve this issue?

    Gili,

    Whenever you change major hardware (motherboard, CPU) it is wise to back-up your data and be prepared to re-install Windows.

    When Windows is installed it builds the HAL around the hardware in the machine. You have effectively changed this and restarted? - If so, it won't work.

    I would plug the drive in another machine as slave, retrieve your data and re-install Windows.

    Hope this helps.

        Unfortunately for you it looks like you will have to i'm afraid.

        I have never been able to successfully fix that error message. Now some may have but i haven't.

        If you have another HDD install windows on that then you will be able to get access to your files.

          It's the HAL that's nuking you.

          Do a repair install, PLEASE. Has worked for me every time. All my SW (and config) was(were) preserved. I've done this 10 +/- times over the years w/ W2K, WXP, W2K3 (maybe even WNT?) so I'm pretty confident. Your mileage may vary.

          Issue w/ WXP activation will probably occur and I'm not sure how your upgrade CD will fly.

          Here's the best repair install link I have:

          http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

          Read it completely and backup, backup, backup -- for others that come after you.
