    Where were you when I needed you?
    This suggestion looks too good to be true.

    Too late for me this time I've decided to spring for a new sata drive and start fresh.

    Thanks all

    BTW even if you did succeed booting with the new motherboard the network would immediatly lock.
    I don't remember if I had to re-activate windows after I changed board, I might have.
    This procedure worked for me once, though I had reinstalled fresh copy more than once.

    i had to re-activate windows when i swapped mb's,but they were the same chipset so i didnt need to re-install,windows will ask for product key again due to significant hardware change

    youll get better performance anyway from a sata hdd,i never thought of the windows disk and doing a repair,like i said ive never attempted it,ive always gone for a clean new install

    Quick update, finally got the IDE drive to work on the new m/b after reinstalling windows. New hd arrived the next day so I was an expert by then. All up and running.
    Did you know that there are hundreds of xp updates that need to be installed also.

    Thanks again to all those that offered suggestions.
    Merry Christmas
