Hi, i'm currently using a Asus M4A89GTD pro usb3 and i'd like to switch to a Asrock 890GX extreme3. Would i be able to just switch mobo and just boot up or would i need to uninstall all drivers for the Asus mobo?
What version of OS are you using ?? -- with VISTA or Win7 they have actually gotten better at being successful with doing this -- After you swap out the MOBO get out your OS disk and boot from it - when it gets to the setup run a REPAIR Install (not the first option of the repair console but the next options REPAIR INSTALLATION ) This will have windows rescan your system and replace all of the system drivers to fit the new MOBO - Afterwards reboot the system and try launching windows - once in Windows go to the device manager and make sure there are no conflicts listed (yellow caution symbols) and remove\reinstall any if they were missed (most of the time it will work properly but best to check for conflicts anyway!) -- Afterwards you will probably need to reactivate the install since replacing major parts will cause it to need reactivation but I've done this several times on systems and never had a problem reactivating the install even on OEM version installs (which are supposedly tied to the MOBO)
