0x80070004 - 0x3000D The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation I've looked into the Windows Event log (and found nothing meaningful) and also did a Google search which leads to this chinese post which suggests a solution that I do not understand (after translating).
So to repeat, I will NOT consider a hard drive format and fresh install. having said that i don't recall ever getting it to work for me with a brokem MB,maybe once when the new boards chipset was the same as broken one .The solution to the 0xc1900101-0x30018 error is a fairly straight forward one though thankfully.Some of the programs were obtained when I was in college and my college distributed free programs by download.Now that I am no longer in college, I'd have to pay hundreds of dollars for replacements (for example, Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Symantec Antivirus).

I have installed a new motherboard and am attempting to boot into the old hard drive, however, Windows 7 will simply start up, try to load the files, and then enter a restart loop.
