Is there a problem booting to hard drive when changing form nVidia IGP-128 chipset to newer nVidia chipset?

My ASUS A7N266-E motherboard died. It has an nVidia IGP-128 Southbridge and a  MCP-D Northbridge. I am running Windows 2000. If I get a new motherboard that has a newer nVidia chipset, i.e. nForce2, nForce2-400, etc., will I be able to boot to my existing hard drive with no problems as long as I install the new chipset drivers? I am assuming here that I need to stay with the same chipset manufacturer for better compatibility.

Hello rlvogel =)

As long as the motherboards are similar, Windows 2000 should allow you to boot with the new motherboard and install the newer drivers.
