Motherboard Upgrade without OS reinstall

By drued ·
I have a multi boot system with:
1. Win 2000 Server
2. Win 2000 Pro
3. Win NT 4.0 server
4. Win 98 SE

I upgraded my motherboard from Intel 810e chipset to Intel 815e chipset

On booting the system after upgrade I was able to log on to Win 98 SE and Win NT 4.0 Server but when i try to log on to Win 2000 Pro or Win 2000 Server the system reboots just before when GUI has to appear.

Is there any way I can get my operating systems to work without having to re-install all the Programs and applications either through using recovery console to install the drivers for M/B or copying registry info to a new install on the same partition?

I would appreciate very much any help in this regard.
Thank you.

Motherboard Upgrade without OS reinstall

I have done this by following the instructions from the Microsoft KnowledgeBase- KB article Q249694. I've copied the following link that may get you there:

Thanks for your question, Terry

The Microsoft KnowledgeBase- KB article Q249694 does suggest a solution using NTBACKUP.EXE, however, there is another way to get around with this is described in "Moving Windows System Disk to Another System (Q271965)".
