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.

sion of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see
whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then
