Try running the Upgrade Advisor. It is a tool from Microsoft that scans your computer and then tells you if your computer is ready to run Windows 7. If it is not ready to run Windows 7, the Upgrade Advisor will tell you what changes to make before upgrading. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/up...
Basically it seems I'm good to go, the only unknown in the diagnosis was the
"Intel Management Engine Interface" which gave an "unknown" status and "we don't have information about this device" which strikes me as slightly odd as Intel is not exactly some unknown company.
So, to sum things up- the tool did not seem to find any substantial problems, on the other hand, it did not address my Mobo at all.
