  1. Are you using the same motherboard (i.e. just changing the CPU and nothing else)? If you are, you don't have to reinstall windows and yes you should be able to use your system image to recover.

    If you are changing motherboards I don't think you can use your old system image to recover.
  2. Yes, same motherboard just different cpu. Thanks for your knowledge guys>
