Change motherboard in XP Pro

By bob_cdr ·
I've upgraded my mother board from an Intel D865GBF to a D915GAV. I booted from the XP Pro CD and went to the Repair prompt. Upon rebooting after the copy, the PC just continually reboots and doesn't go into the repair procedure as it normally would. The Bootable CD is XP Pro w/SP2. The hard disk is a 160MB Maxtor with approx. 50GIG in use. System has 1MG of DDR-400 ram. Big system lots of hardware, printers scanners, zip, jaz, etc... Any thoughts on what to do to get system to reinstall?

There is a hardware change so XP activation may be causing the problem,the solution may be to install a fresh copy on the system

Repair option does not apply in this instance,therefore the system is rebooting becuase it has hardware change
