» Saturday, March 08, 2008It Didn't Work
Everything we read online said that basically we are screwed. (If anyone knows differently, write now please!) Another person said they also changed their motherboard, video driver, etc. and got the same blue screen. They just had to back everything up and then reformat.
It looks like it will be better just to get a SATA drive that goes with the motherboard/processor/etc. Sigh.
Meanwhile we used the WindowsXP disk to network the laptop (still on Win98 since we don't have the drivers for it), which the Visual Quickstart Guide WinXP book said we could do, through the wired network card which we had bought several years ago. We were never able to network through Win98, but this worked just fine.
