Swapping mobo, Keyboard and Mouse don't work

I am moving a hard drive from one computer to another. It works fine in the old computer.

After resolving the inaccessible boot device problem, the new computer will start Win 2k. However, it attempts to load drivers for the new motherboard(I have all of the non-essential devices turned off, CD, LAN, etc.).

The problem is that the keyboard does not work. So I cannot select the next button to install the drivers.

I tried different keyboards and different motherboards, same problem. The keyboard does work until Win 2k is loaded. Thus, I can enter the BIOS and change settings.

I have lost the Win 2k cd, so I cannot reinstall the OS. Any ideas?

If you haven't done so, try uninstalling all the onboard drivers before installing the hdd on the new board.
