inspiron 560 wont boot after new mobo

Jump to solution

just relpaced mobo with brand new old stock ans it won't boot into windows 7, just goes into repair options but won't repair.

It tries to start windows, it comes up starting windows, you see the coloured logo just peek onto the screen then it reboots.

yes, it's the same model mobo.

TIA.

Check the SATA operating mode for the drives -- it must be set to the same as it was before the board was replaced (AHCI, RAID, etc.).

F2 at powerup to check.

only problem I had is that f2 wouldn't work so had to go in through boot menu.
