really easy. but this only works if the original motherboard
and harddrive still work. so put it back together. for newbies,
go to control panel, double-** the system icon, go to hardware
tab, and ** device manager button. find the IDE ATA/ATAPI CONTROLLERS and expand the tab.
not the primary or secondary controller, but right-** the first controller.
choose update driver. choose the option to install from a list or specific location.
** next. now choose the (don't search. I will choose the driver to install) option.
** next. now highlight the Standard Dual Channel Pci Ide Controller. ** next.
the Standard controller will install. now reboot. log in.
the standard controller is completely installed.
you can now shutdown the computer, remove your harddrive, and it will boot with the new motherboard.
i've done this 24 times on 12 different computers. it works.
