My System Specs

Default

I generally do a Windows XP repair when I upgrade the motherboard, if it fails to boot up.

Activating an E-machines specific XP install if you're not using a motherboard that has an e-machine bios could be tricky. They might not even let you do it at all, so you might need to purchase another copy of XP. What I generally do if it fails to activate is call in, tell MS that the motherboard died and I got it fixed at the store, and they'll reactivate it on the spot.
