Post XP Won't Start After Rebuild

I just rebuilt my system (new cpu/mobo/ram/vid card). I am trying to reuse the old HDD with op system already installed. The system will POST ok and i can go into BIOS. But, windows XP won't start. Keeps rebooting. Won't start in safe mode or any of the choices. I guess i thought this should work. Have i missed something basic here? I really don't want to reformat.

Hi, welcome to AOA.

You will need to get your Windows CD, and run a repair install, to do this. Put the disk in, make sure the BIOS is set to boot off CD, the first screen asks you to press enter to install, or 'r' for recovery. Press enter to install, then it scans for previous installations of Windows, press 'r' to repair the existing install of Windows. Follow the prompts and re-install the drivers and you should be ok to go.
