  1. Dont know about the reg edit thing but pretty much everyone else around here will tell you your best is to do a clean install.
    Youll have less problems plus you wont have any unnecessary drivers, spyware, and such on the drive that will effect performance.
  2. If you are going to replace the mobo, then you must dump off the drivers so windows can bootup with the standard drivers. However I still just reinstall windows for its a good excuse to do so.
