Best solution EnderWiggin December 17, 2012 4:21:04 PM I agree with thr fresh install of Windows but disagree about the old drivers, uninstall them all to avoid conflicts when you install the new MB drivers.

My biggest concern would be the Intel usb drivers and the Marvell ethernet drivers. EnderWiggin December 18, 2012 3:56:03 PM It doesn't hurt to remove them. But you still might have an issue to boot properly once you switched the MBs. I would try booting into Windows Safe Mode the first time. borisbulldog December 28, 2012 12:42:03 AM Best answer selected by borisbulldog. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
