Dual Boot and I changed the Motherboard from Via to Nvidia.
Ok I always like challenges.
I replaced my A7V880 XP2600+ board for an A8N-VM with a 939 3000+ cpu. Just
a board/cpu/memory/video transplant.
Since I did minimul prep, I had to do a repair reinstall of XP (without
problems) and expected simular for Vista Buis.
Alas, not so quick. Vista boot cd is unable to affect a repair. It knows I
changed something but it is at a loss to re-do.

Before I actually try a repair install (like we do with XP), is there a file
or two I can delete that will cause the Vista boot repair engine to regen
with new hardware drivers?
I can just shoot it and keep myself busy for a few days but I would rather
limit the work load.

Thank you
David

Hi David,

Vista does not offer a repair install ala XP, you have to reinstall fully.
