I am upgrading my CPU and my motherboard. Do I need to reinstall windows or will it be good already on my hard drive?


UPDATE: Everything works fine. I didn't even need to boot windows from the USB

when swapping motherboards if not exactly the same a minimum of windows repair install is needed and a clean full install is recommended. As well the two platforms use different drivers so all motherboard drivers need to be installed for the new board.
