Windows 7 after motherboard replace

So, I know that you need to reinstall OS after replacing parts like motherboard. I replaced mine long time ago. I managed to do it somehow, I think it was some HP program I launched somehow. My version is preinstalled. I have this Recovery thing in my hard drive. Im not sure should I use it and should I launch it from bios or should I launch the HP factory reset/OS reinstall thing wich I dont remember how to. Any ideas?

  1. did you replace your motherboard with the same HP model? if so, nothing will change. if you replaced it with something else, a reload would be recommended, but not from your HP backup.
  2. when turning on pc rapidly press f10 it or f11 it is used in most hp for factory reset ;)
    if you have done this before with the new motherboard and everything worked well do it again because it installs all drivers

    Why I cant use the HP recovery? It worked last time well. After that, I installed all the drivers and everything worked fine.
