    Windows automatically installs the drivers when it is installed or you often get them as a set like the VIA 4 in 1 drivers.

    The problem specifically is the ide disk driver, it is loaded by windows to speed up boot up process. If you are aware of the problem then you can set it to use a generic ide driver, but if you dont the in install is useless as it is.

    It is a massive pain in the arse and a lot of people will say that if you change the motherboard then it is easiest to do a new install as you dont have anything from the old drivers slowing the system down.

    If you can get a bootable windows install disk do a recovery install as it will fix the MBR problem automatically and also will redetect all of the drivers that windows is using including the motherboard drivers.
