Hi, I changed the motherboards on a Win2K Pro image and it won't load with the new Intel IDE interface.  It still keeps the old VIA chipset IDE driver.  I tried to force the update on the VIA motherboard before imaging, but it did not take.  How do I update the driver for my new chipset while running on the new chipset and motherboard while maintaining my current setup, i.e. I do NOT want to do a new install of Win2K?

Thanks!

Description of Safe Boot Mode in Windows 2000 how to add and remove drivers in safe mode.

From: stevenlewis     Date: 08/07/2001 08:14PM PST .You will have a problem with the HAL (hardware access layer) that w2k sets upon install. w2k protects
         the hardware with the HAL, so that nothing may access the hardware directly, it must go thru the HAL.
         That is why you have to deal with the technical aspects that Dennis and I pointed out. It is not like 9x where you could delete the local_machine\enum key in the reg and then move it and lwet windows find  new hardware

               I have 2 almost identical computers 99.99 % the same.I had an image of one
               I thought I might save some time instead of clean install on second  
  I could restore image from other computer,this works with win98 but not with 2000.
               ended up wasting a lot of time,and had to install from CD

============

I hope this helps !

STOP 0x0000007B" Error After Moving Windows 2000 System Disk to Another System
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q271965
"After you move the system (boot) disk to a backup computer, you may receive the following message on your Windows computer when you try to start the backup computer:

***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF741B84C,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)
INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

CAUSE
The registry entries and drivers for the mass storage controller hardware in the backup computer are not installed in Windows.

For integrated device electronics (IDE) controllers, there are several different chip sets available, such as Intel, VIA, and Promise. Each chip set uses a different Plug-n-Play (PNP) ID to identify it.

The PNP-ID information of mass storage controllers for the backup computer must be in the registry prior to startup for Windows to initialize the correct drivers. "
