Changing mobo, changing drivers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey people,

My MSI 790fx-gd70 died the other day and I'm in the process of swapping it out with an Asus M4A79XTZD EVO that I had in another rig. I'm in a bit of a hurry so I don't exactly want to reinstall windows atm. Can I just boot into safe mode and uninstall old/install new drivers? I'm a bit unsure. Also.. since both mobo's happen to have 790 chipsets do I need to have the raid driver for the new board?

Use DriverSweeper.
I doubt the RAID config would have survived.

There is a good chance that the raid will continue to work after you add them back. But depending on how much data you have, you might need to use acronis and make a backup just in case. No need for safe mode as windows 7 will fix all of it when you boot back into windows.

Like mbudden said, use DriverSweeper to get rid of the old drivers, then install the new ones.

Thanks guys.

With a couple quick changes in bios the raid drive took right off without a hitch.
