Changed Motherboards Dell 1950 getting hardware stop errors

Dell 1950 2GB RAM, 2- 250GB SATA Hard drives  RAID (Mirror)  Dual Pwr Supplies, Single Processor. Motherboard crashed - Dell replaced it with same model (but different Rev.)
Machine now boots to login screen for about 15 Seconds and then gets Blue Screen with the following codes.
stop: 0x0000009c (0x00000005, 0x808977a0, 0xb2000010, 0x84200e0f) -

Years ago when I had to change a motherboard Microsoft had a KB article that described a number of drivers that had to be copied to the System so that on the boot to the new motherboard the OS would find and change to the drivers it needed for the new hardware.
Does anyone have a definition of the 5 stop codes above?
Does anyone have the link to that Microsoft KB that explains how and which drivers to add to the new system?
Does anyone have a better solution than listed above?

This is the Finance server for the company I work for and although it is backed up. *I would prefer not having to reinstall all the accounting, ADP, Timeclock, etc Software if their is another way.
I am really under the gun to get this fixed Immed so any thoughts would be appreciated.

There is a thread in EE about almost exactly the same problem, with stop message
0x0000009c (0x00000005, 0xf77352b0, 0xb2000010, 0x84200e0f)

They run through the diagnostics, and a temporarily solution, but bottom line, it was a buggy motherboard.  I am inclined to believe that is the case.

I read another one on EE earlier but the one you reference is closer.  As I mentioned this is a brand new motherboard Fedexed in from Dell. That said it wouldn't be the first time that a new part would turn out to be defective. Dell is coming back tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. I will see if they can bring another motherboard with him.

Check in here tomorrow afternoon to see the outcome.

I would still like to try driver fix I used to use I know I have the info on it here somewhere in about 3 Terabytes of Tech stuff from 25 years in the business.
Thank you for your reply.  I will be sure to let you know tomorrow.

Your thoughts were correct that the new motherboard was defective.  The second new board booted right up.

Thank you
This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).
