Chances are, your disk controller changed with the change of
motherboards. This has been covered a couple of times on this list.

The fix is fairly simple - build a new initrd with the drivers for
the new motherboard. You can do this by booting with the install
media and using the rescue mode. Then chroot to the mounted root
directory, and run mkinitrd.
