A server that I built about 4 years ago finally died. The client did not want to upgrade but wanted a repair. I found the identical Motherboard from Ebay, the board is an ABIT VP6 with the IDE HPT Raid. I have 2 drives in a raid 1 and a CD drive and the single system drive all on the HPT ports. I replaced with a known working VP6 motherboard and everything looks ok, then goes through the Starting Windows 2000 screens and then just gets ready to load the login screen flashes a BSOD and then restarts over and over. Everything is the same except that the processors are now 2 866/133 instead of what was originally in the board 2 1ghz/133. I didnt think that this would matter to the OS. Do I just need to restore? I would rather get this working for them if I can. Thanks

you need to run a windows repair, boot from the cd, go to setup windows, and repair the current installation
