Default Swapping a existing Win server to new motherboard/system

Normally when a motherboard blows out on a Win 2000 (2003?) server and you have to put in a new one, if its not the same chipset you will usually end up with a blue screen "inaccessible boot device" and have to go through all kinds of stuff to get it running or have to find a similiar bios board to get it to boot at all.

Is there a quick way to fix this, not reformatting and reloading, but some little tip or trick to make the machine work with the new MB. I'm sure someone must have figured out some neat trick by now.

Nope, a repair installation is what I had to use to fix mine.

lawson_jl is an unknown quantity at this point

While this won't help with your particular problem you can use Acronis True Image with Universal Restore to copy an install of Windows to a differnt (or the same) drive on a differnt motherboard.

You can try the repair install to fix your problem but be sure to reapply any updates or service packs.
