Of course, it will work fine; but with most new boards, windows will crash as it can't find the original motherboard drivers. Windows 7 should have no problems installing without the motherboard cd; if you're using windows xp, then you'll need the motherboard cd with it's device drivers.
thanks again for the feedback.
i have windows Vista home premium OS on my PC.
would i still need the motherboard CD?
also, when you make reference to the m/b CD are you referring to the Foxconn m/b CD?
sorry i am not savvy enough to keep up with the conversation without some clarity.
once again, thanks for the feedback!!!
