boot problem (inacessable boot device)

I've searched the forums and found problems similar to mine but no solutions for my particular problem.
I am attempting to build a computer with a Pcchips M811LU motherboard and a Duron 1.8 G processor. I realize now that this motherboard doesn't have a good track record but at the time I purchased it it looked like an affordable way for a long overdue upgrade.
I am attempting to boot from a Samsung Trigem SV10220/TGE hard drive with Windows 2000 Pro already installed. This drive boots and works fine on the computer I'm presently using. When I try to boot it on the new system it looks like it is going to boot normally. I get a black screen saying Windows 2000 is starting and the progress bar fills up. Then it goes to the Windows 2000 splash screen with a progress bar that fills about 1/3 of the way before going to a blue screen with an error message......stop 0x0000007B (0xED41B84C,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) inacessable_boot_device.
I'm not a technician. This is my first attempt at building a computer. There is a great deal I don't understand about them. Why will this hard drive not boot when it is being detected and read from by the motherboard?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
