Ok, so here is the deal, right now I have a Compaq computer that I want to put a different motherboard in there with the same HD's as the Compaq had. I have a ECS K7S5A Mobo that I would like to put in. The 2 issues I have is I can't find my XP disk since I moved and I also lost my disk that came with the ECS Mobo. So I went on to ECS.com and downloaded the drives for the AGP, Audio, and LAN Drivers. Now there is a link for me to download the BIOS for the Mobo, (here is the screenshot of the ECS download)
I have no clue which one to download and I dont know how to flash to BIOS, so my first question is
-Do I need to Flash the Bios if so how do I do it?
-Will doing this mess up my HD's if I want to put the Compaq board (TR100)
back in and use the same drives?
Now my other thing is, since I have no clue where my XP disk went and since I'm using the same HD from my Compaq which has XP on it can I just plug that into the board and use those files?
Now my other question is do I have to make a bootable disk with the Drivers?
I know this sounds odd, but i have no idea what to do here. I have built a few PC's, but each time I have all the software I needed and this time I dont have ANYTHING, so I'm lost.
Now see I'm concerned because all 200gig of memory on this PC I NEED and is ALMOST irreplaceable, so I dont want to loose any of it.
Anyone have any ideas?
