Hey guys, so I just bought a new mobo, CPU, memory and got everything put together but its not loading up windows.. keeps coming up with the safe mode options and ive tried all of them but it just keeps resetting. My understand is that windows wont boot due not recognizing the drivers or something. I do not have a windows disc and have an OEM license, but was told if I had a vista disc I could pop that in and repair and be good to go, but I dont have that either.. Can someone help me out here or point me in the right direction.. dont have the money to go and buy a new license with holidays around the corner
so if im understand this right all i need to do is the command prompt and enter c:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /quiet /generalize /shutdown /oobe
and when it shuts down i can put the new mobo/cpu/memory back in and itll boot up fine?
and the drivers you are talking about loading are the ones on the CD for the mobo or?
Actually there is. If you have a disk, then you have it and makes it yourself still a bit easier.
I just would install your new mobo and install Windows and possibly your license is already used. Just contact Microsoft (a real human pref) and ask if they could fix it for you. They should do it normally.
