The whole hard drive is reusable but Windows 8 is not. You will need to reinstall windows after reformatting everything on the hard drive. Windows 8 OEM System Builder license comes with transfer rights, so you can move it to a new motherboard and reactivate by telephone
Try plugging it in and booting from it .
Some people have claimed that Win 8 is smart enough to sort the drivers out for you .
