Specs: Windows XP + Vista
my friends MCP73VT-PM mobo is failing so on boot up everything okay apart from onbaord VGA and keyboard, (HDD is SATA running VISTA also possibly failing)
My question is this, is it poss for me to mount his failing MCP73VT-PM mobo directly using a spare good mobo (IDE NOT SATA), just so i can use the VGA output to get the monitor working to save data from his SATA HDD, hope this is clear. Thanks Debs ;0/

You need to remove the SATA Drive and put it in a USB Caddy, something like:

Not possible. You cannot connect two motherboards together with some really technical knowledge of electronics and a lot of technical information.

A USB caddy is really your only option.
