New OEM for new mobo - Boot Drive

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am planning to change out my mobo, and I heard that it will cause problems with my OS (Win7 HP OEM), as it is OEM I need to get a new OS disc. but if I install the new OS on the new mobo, what will happen to the boot data on my Caviar Black?

Will it just "patch" for the new CD key? or will it reformat just the OS data, or even every single data before installing.

When you change the motherboard it will throw off your install. You need to reinstall anyway. You might be able to reuse your disk to install again.

when you format it erases everything on the hard drive that is being used for the OS.
