Question New MB install

I've got the following new parts:
Giga-byte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI nForce 4 Socket 939 MB,
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0Ghz CPU,
Kingston 1GB Kit DDR400 PC3200 CL3 (3-3-3) RAM,
Giga-byte GeForce 6600 256MB DDR PCI-Express video card.

I'm using my existing 100G IDE hard drive for now. Is there a way to get this going without having to load the OS and everything else from scratch? I'm running Win 2K Pro SP4. I've already tried booting it up but it only gets about a third of the way up and I get the dreaded blue screen with the message INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.

I'm assuming that Windows is choking because the MB drivers are not loaded. Is there a way to load them outside of Windows?

Definatly not that smartest way to go about things. I would almost guarantee your going to have on going issues if your replacing all that, and just swapping in a hard drive. Ive seen people do it, but its not a good idea.

Do a format, fresh install, dl all the latest drivers and chipsets, and reload things from there.

Just my .02$

Good Luck
