At the very least, you will need to do a repair install overwriting the drivers currently installed.
When you change the motherboard, you almost always change the chipset, which is very bad. You canot do that in any OS. Essentially all the basic instructions are different now, and your system can't load anything, which isn't shocking.

Thanks, I know that changing of chipset etc. is not very good for OS, but I thought that linux is kind of more self-repairing. It even didn't ask me for dvd for new drivers, also there is no option for repair installation.
