win 10 after new MOBO

Recommended Posts

Hi, is it possible to keep my boot drive when I have replaced my MOBO, CPU and Video Card?

I would not think so but maybe there is a trick

Any help would be much appreciated

If you are changing OS's Say from Win 7 to Win 10 then I would do that first. Otherwise when you power up for the first time simply go into BIOS and make your present boot drive the NEW boot drive. Of course you want to install the chipset drivers first, then reboot and set your drives up.

You will get a disk with the mobo. It may or may not have the latest chipset drivers. Go to Motherboard site and download the newest BIOS and re-flash the BIOS then update whatever drivers are needed.

After setting up your boot drive the BIOS will read the BOOT sector files and boot the drive.
