replaced motherboard now windows wont boot
I just replaced a motherboard and cpu in my pc. when I turn it on it goes through the new bios then to the windows loading screen it flashes a quick blue then restarts does the same thing except it goes to the error screen that says system recovery or statt windows normally. I was told when replacing a motherboard you need to put a fresh copy of wondows on the hdd is this true?

If you replace a MOBO from X to Y. Lets say An Z77 to a FX990. Then you have to reinstall Windows. Most of the driver does not fit and ect.
But if you replace a Asus Z77 with a MSI Z77. Then from time to time you can be lucky that it will boot up. but with a few missing drivers (Reinstalling Windows is still recommended.)
If you replace your MOBO with the same MOBO again. Then there should be no issues.
