Switching Mobo's

Recommended Posts

hey i just got my new motherboard in and im looking foward to getting it installed on the rig im just wondering if i will be able to do the switch without reformatting my hard drive and reinstalling windows. Last time i tried the switch from an asus a7n8xe board to the asus a8n-sli deluxe it needed to be formatted....is there a trick to mobo swapping without a reformat?

unless it uses the same exact bios and drivers, which I strongly doubt, you're going to have to reformat.

I hate to sound like a jerk but... look at the stickies area when you go into the motherboard area... wonder what you could find there?
