A while back I was given a new to me motherboard to use in my backup machine, I installed it and made sure all of the jumpers were correct and fired it up. I immediately realized that I had problems with the OS, and every time I restarted the computer the problems became worse. It eventually got to the point that all I would get was a blank blue screen. I wiped the hdd and reinstalled the OS and I had no more problems.
A friend explained that what had happened was that the hdd was confused seeing the drivers used with the new motherboard. This explanation didn't really help me to understand what actually occurred, can someone here explain this for me?
