    Hi All,

    I've just installed a new motherboard (different) and am trying to configure
    XP Home for it.

    I do not want to re-install XP / format and I don't have an original XP disc
    to perform a 'fix', I only the recovery XP disc that came with my PC.

    Can I install my new motherboard using my recovery disc? Can I do it from
    the console?

    Thanks all
    Simon

    If it was one of my machines from before 2004, yes. If it was after 2004,
    then no. But then that's a machine from me. Who did you get your machine
    from?

    Sorry, forgot to mention:

    I do have an origional XP Pro disk, but this won't work as it's says it's a
    different version of Windows (obviously!)

    Then Evesham are the people to ask. Different manufacturers have differ
    policies on the restore disk. Some, like Airis, just supply an install CD
    with a different label on it and it will install anywhere - others supply an
    disk tied to the OEM string on the motherboard, others provide a disk that
    is an image of the factory install with a fancy fronted that merely
    expands/copies the image to hard drive.

    A recovery disk in unlikely to be able to repair, it may even be tied to

    You can never be 100% sure with an upgrade, allways wise to backup data
