How to change Motherboards without reinstalling XP... by BadBigBen
Posted: 19 Sep 07 (Edited 30 Oct 07)

STEP 1.

Copy the following files from your XP CD to the %Windir%\System32\drivers  Folder:

ATAPI.SYS           (ATAPI.SY_ on the XP INSTALL CD)
INTELIDE.SYS        (INTELIDE.SY_   "   "   "   "  )
PCIIDE.SYS          (PCIIDE.SY_     "   "   "   "  )
PCIIDEX.SYS         (PCIIDEX.SY_    "   "   "   "  )

use the expand command from the CLI (RUN BOX or CMD Line Interface)
Info on the EXPAND command @
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/expand.mspx

ie. expand -r Z:\I386\PCIIDE.SY_ C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers

    Where Z: is the DVD/CD Drive the XP Install CD is located at...
    And C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers is the destination FOLDER...



Step 2.

Copy the Following into NotePad and save it out as MERGEIDE.REG:
