new motherboard wont boot

Specs: Windows XP
How do I re-boot hard drives (with XP Pro installed) after replaceing the motherboard and cpu. I have, had until the motherboard developed problems, 4 (four) hard drives ranging in size from 120 GB to 250 GB setup outside of cabinet with cloning system to make daily back up of each primary drives. Neither of these dives will boot up with the new motherboard!!!!

All of the above drives will boot, as a slave, to a drive that I have installed XP with the new motherboard!!! I did this to make sure the computer is working with the different motherboard.

What can I do to make the four original drives boot up and work with the new motherboard???

You changed the board therefore XP will have to be reinstalled, that's how it works.
