backup and recovery media usually have the OS in them in case of a full reinstall. But at the same time, since it is recovery media, it might be a ghost image of the system as it was when bought. Be careful using that now that you are changing boards.

I have been very successful in removing chiset drivers form my systems and changing boards w1thout 1. reinstalling windows and 2. reactivating windows.

But if you do not have much experience with drivers and where they are located and such, I suggest you get yourself a new copy of Windoze (buy a license at least) for a complete fresh install.
