I'm looking to upgrade my motherboard from a ASUS P8Z77 V-LX to a MSI Z77A-G45 LGA.

I'm currently using only one hard drive.

I'm wondering how straight forward it will be to replace my ASUS board. Will I be able to boot up and go after installing the MSI without any issues from windows?

Or will I need to uninstall windows 7? How would I even go about doing that? I have the included disks for it. Is it just a matter of re authenticating Windows?

Basically, what all do I need to accomplish when swapping out boards? Youtube videos only show the plug and play aspects, but that's it.

Thanks!

It is recommended to do a clean install, but you probably will get away with repair and MSI driver install

DVD in, startup from DVD drive and select new install with formatting the drive. Backup all your important data first.
