Win2k inaccessable-boot-device

after install of new mainboard)

I had win2k sbs installed on an old ATA 33 workstation and then got a new ATA 100 server when I put the drive in I get an stop ...07B error.

I suspect it is an issue with the old Ide driver not supporting the new ATA100 controller. However how can I ger the new driver installed so it will work.

I am thinking of installing the new driver on the old machine then shutting down and swaping the driver to the new server and seeing if that works.

Does any one else have any other questions.

You can try going to the recovery console and run listsvc ...try disabling the existing IDE drivers and see if Win2k will default to a standard driver for the boot up.

When installing W2K press F6 when prompted for additional controller drivers. This way you can add the driver for your controller before the graphical portion of the setup starts. Make sure you have a W2K driver installation on a floppy disk.
