Old Mother board is Intel DH67CL and changed to DH77EB oem board.

I would not necessarily expect the Windows 7 drive built on a board with a 67-series chipset to boot on a board with a 77-series chipset.

You would probably have gotten away with this on XP, but Windows 7 is more particular.

Did the drive boot ok on the old board? Why the change to the new board?

Also, have you confirmed that the bios settings are the same on the new as the old?

with old MB(dh67cl) I was able to boot perfectly, the reason I changed MB is continuously 3 beeps coming when switching on pc, and there was no display. I consulted Hardware technician, as per suggestion I changed, but didn't think about OS, he told me that it will boot automatically then have to install MB drivers, but now I am unable to boot into OS..

Its showing like this, "starting windows" and behind graphics starting and got stuck then immediately restarting... and same happening...

Yes, this is the behavior I would expect on the new board. You might try booting into safe mode, but there is no guarantee that will work either.

I might try removing every device not necessary, and then booting.

However, the proper way is a fresh install of the OS.

I agree with Al; when you change processor and/or chipset generations, you should - and usually have to - reinstall the O/S (especially when it is Windows 7). What is happening is a BSOD is occurring during the load of Windows and this results in the cycling that you are seeing.

You will have to reinstall Windows 7. If you want to retain most of the content of your C: drive, you can try re-installing Windows 7 as an upgrade.

Hope this helps,

arjunarjun, please let us know if you were able to do the fresh installation of Windows 7. As mentioned before, this may address the restart issue you are encountering.

Amy.
