Changing the Hardware but keeping the O.S.

Hi There!!

I Have a Pentium III Slot 1 with Windows 2000 instaled.

My mainboard doesn't work and I had to purchase another one.

How can I make my Windows 2000 recognize the new hardware without make a new
instalation?
Is there something about the HAL stuff? Or something else?

Keep in mind, after the repair, you will have to re-install any
updates/patches to the OS since that time of the repair disk was made.

Some updates/patches will follow thru, others will be lost and have to be
re-applied.

This does not hold true for third-party apps. They will stay as well as
your personal data.
