Windows 7: Stuck at black screen that says "loading operating system"

Stuck at black screen that says "loading operating system"

I just installed a new motherboard into my compaq preserio and when the computer starts up I am greeted with a black screen that says "loading operating system...". When I plug the original motherboard in I am greeted with a black screen, nothing happens after that. I have already installed the new motherboard's drivers but thats was when it crashed. I ran a diagnostic on it and it gave me error BIOHD 3, which I believe means that the drivers couldnt be found. So I am stuck at a stand still until I can find a fix.

Usually, after a motherboard change, a Clean Install Windows 7 is needed .

Have you tried a repair from your OS ? It sounds weird though. Having just installed a new MOBO this christmas with other bits and bobs and it works fine.
