Asus p8p67 pro change over question

A friends replacement Asus p8p67 pro b3 motherboard should be arriving this week.
Do we need to fresh install Windows and the rest.. after rebuilding?

He is convinced they changed over a couple on machines at his work, rebuilt, booted up and the system recognised the board no problems and have been operating fine for the last 3 months?

Thanks in advance for any help :)

    Negative, you do not.

    If you're switching from a non-P67 board to a P67 board, the only thing you need to do is -- before you do the motherboard change -- go into the device manager and revert all of the SATA controller drivers to standard IDE drivers.

    Here is the procedure for doing this for Windows XP. The Windows 7 procedures should be similar.

    Good luck!
  3. Thanks for info. The board we are changing over was an original Asus p8p67 pro the we returned for the B3 model based on the cougar point issue.

    Yeah definitely no reason to reinstall the O/S. Good luck -- enjoy the board.
