Help with rebuilt computer

926 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Old Rich
I just got parts today for a basically new computer (Mobo, CPU, RAM, PSU) and I decided I would just use my old HDD, and delete my old partition from the old build (old Compaq).
I've changed bios to boot from the CD drive, but whenever I turn the computer on, it will try to log me into windows, and will say that I need to activate.
For some reason it won't go into windows setup so i can load the new windows. Also it won't let me register online (since I can't instal drivers for the LAN) or do phone registration. Also the windows support is no help since I bought OEM.

Does anyone know how I can fix my computer to go into the setup?

btw i have this mobo:

If you have an OEM version of XP it may not necessarily be bootable. Is this a legal copy of XP?
