Operating system installation after motherboard taken out


I took apart all the part from my home built system.
Because my MOBO was not showing up one of the memory.
I sent it to ASUS for repair.
question is

when I put back the system again, do I have to installed the operating system again.
I am using win 7 ultimate with 64 bit.
also, I have two HD with operating system and one storage.

  1. No. Not unless you change more than one piece of hardware when you put your system back together. I've never had any problem when changing just one item at a time, such as the cpu or ram. Windows should be fine. It may reboot once if you change the usb port for a usb device, for example, but that's all.
  2. As long as ASUS sends you back the same type of MOBO (ie. same chipset, etc.) it should be fine ( though it might require reactivating of the license ) -- if for some reason they send you a new MOBO that has different components you might have to do a repair installaton to have the OS reevaluate the system devices and install the proper drivers but chances are you will get the same MOBO as a replacement so that will most likely not be needed.
  3. Thanks for the super fast reply.

    I will get back to you when I got my MOBO Back.
    I hope everything work out OK this time, memory slot and operating system
