Solved Upgrade without reinstalling to a UEFI motherboard? Tags: Asus BIOS Windows 7 Motherboards Last response: March 15, 2014 10:09 PM in Windows 7 Share Clackamas March 15, 2014 10:05:58 PM My current system is an ASUS M4A79T plus AMD Phenom ii x3 with a standard PC BIOS. I am planning to upgrade the motherboard to either an ASUS M5A97 or M5A99 with and FX 83xx series CPU. I don't want to reintall Win 7 Pro. but I am not familiar with the BIOS related requests windows makes post boot. Ideally, will Windows do the right thing or will it bomb out?
