You will have to call HP (much good luck needed from what I've heard about them).

Your HP Restore disk is designed to work with your old motherboard. If the new one is different, it probably won't work. You will most likely have to reinstall XP using a retail disc. If you can, just borrow a friend's disc.

Tks But I have back up FILE discs that aren't recognized. Can't believe tech put in hardware that is not compatible w/ software. And didn't warn me. Also the Burner and other software frm HP was much easier to use. I need the "As purchased software pack". Tech did install Vista and gave me the disc. Raw Vista stinks.
