So, I've read up on this topic and there are a couple of ways that seem to work. One is installing the Standard IDE in the device manager.
Has anyone had success with this?
These are two different mobo's.
The other way is doing a repair of WindowsXP.
Has anyone had any success either way?

Thanks for your help,
Joe Raza

The easiest way...

Hi,

I just replaced 10 motherboards and had no problems when I changed the IDE Controller (not Primary or Secondary) with the Standard IDE Controller. When XP asks you if you want to reboot, click no. Then shutdown your computer and change the motherboard. Reattach all peripherals, etc. and reboot. You will need to re-register your copy of WindowsXP. So, if you have illegal copies, this method will not work for you.
