I'm moving my Small Business Server 2000 to newer hardware. I used Acronis TrueImage to create an image of the partitions on the current 250GB IDE drive and restored the images to partitions on a 750GB SATA drive. The new mainboard is an Intel D915GEV.
When I boot the system it makes it part way through then BSODs with:
STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
If I boot in safe mode I can see that it's loading lots of drivers and the BSOD happens when it tries to switch into the graphical boot. That means the drive isn't totally inaccessible.
I'm currently operating under the theory that this is caused by the fact that my original Server 2000 doesn't have drivers for the SATA controller on the new motherboard. The early part of the boot process must be handled by the BIOS and it only fails when Windows tries to take over the file access.
I know you can use F6 during a fresh install to add drivers but that doesn't seem to help me since I'm not installing fresh. Even so, I have not been able to track down SATA drivers for this board even though I have found all the other drivers on Intel's site. It appears that there aren't specific drivers for the SATA controller.
What's the best way to handle this?
I made sure I can always go back to the old hardware but I'd really like to get this running on the newer hardware. The hardware is pretty similar - it's not like I'm doing a major hardware upgrade, it's even the same processor and this mainboard is really similar to one this install used to run on. (The old hardware failed so I had to quickly move to new hardware, now I'm trying to move it back to the replacement hardware Intel sent as a warranty replacement.)
