For some reason i can't remember what button i have to push to get into boot menu for safe mode... I feel stupid even saying that...

They're sorta different on every mobo, some use F8, f10, f12. Probably a few others im missing

Take the HDD and plug it into another system and make a back of all the files you need saving.
Also invest in another HDD. One for OS/install and other for storage. That why if this happens again, you can just reinstall the OS, without losing your files on storage drive.

There is a good chance that you will not be able to boot into windows even after a repair, this has happened to me multiple times as a matter of fact, sometimes the repair function will fix the issue and allow you to boot windows (you most likely wont get the entire, full working W7 though, with some kinks). But for me , whenever I make a change it has normally forced me to reinstall windows no matter what I have done to prevent it. Its just the way the chipsets work, sorry about that. One thing about computers that bugs me is this

You dont need the disk to do a start up repair, you can do that without the disk.

You likely don't have the chipset drivers available for the OS, so you will never get that OS started again without the old motherboard.

Different motherboard equals different chip sets. Which make windows incompatible with the new hardware.
