Cannot rename Network connection

After changed the motherboard, i was not able to rename my network connection in one of my windows 2008 R2 server.

it says that Cannot rename this connection,. A connection with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different name.

Also i ran cmd set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and checked in device mgr  the View hidden devices in Device manager but still not able to find any network adapters.

Kindly suggest how to rename the network connections.
