That is good news. Thanks. System is running NT Workstation 4.0 SP6.
Of course, there is no Safe Mode. I'm thinking of transferring all
cards and peripherals from the old to the new system at the same time.
The only thing I would have to be concerned about would be integrated
sound, correct? Would there be any other motherboard issues? I guess
there are registry entries that will be in conflict such as the
processor type, speed ,etc. Is this an issue?
