Why not backup EVERYTHING?

Do you get a new mobo and a new disk as well?
Why reinstall?

Make screenshot of the powerplan or simply write it down... not that much work. Dont know where it is in registry.

You only want to save the start type of services? Or more?

See attached bat file. Run it. It will create a bat file in same folder (you can display it in notepad) . Is that what you mean?

Make a backup of that file and run it from elevated command prompt after reinstall
