Windows 7: Changing motherboard with different chipset

Changing motherboard with different chipset

I don't have the recovery disc, and its a different chipset in new motherboard. I know if I could boot from old mobo and use sysprep tool I'd be fine. However that is not possible. Is there a way to manually edit the driver files or run sysprep from a live-cd? Registry hacking might even be necessary.

*edit: I just tried running sysprep from a Windows 7 Recovery Disc command prompt, but it gives the error that ActionQueue.dll is missing from my computer.

Did you already install the new motherboard, so you're ready to start the process if I tell you how? You use the original disk, no restore is involved in the process?

Read the attached pdf. It can inject drivers using "P2P adjust OS" option. You want the software? It was freeware a long time ago.

There is Paragon Adaptive Restore 2010 Personal Edition Advanced Recovery.ISO
And the manual. Burn ISO to DVD and boot from it. Use option P2P Adjust OS.
If system boots successfully after using the software... check device manager and uninstall all unneeded drivers. And uninstall software that belongs to devices not attached anymore. And of course install motherboard drivers. Either using windows update or by CD.

Use option "Adjust the OS to the new hardware automatically"
Migrate Windows 7 to different hardware platforms

After succesfull boot... Check in device manager if all is fine!

Did you try to boot after motherboard swap? System crashed with stopcode 7B? If so... was old BIOS SATA in AHCI mode? Is new BIOS as well in same mode? Anyway set your BIOS SATA settings to AHCI (or to RAID if already set to RAID). Not to legacy mode nor IDE!

sysprep syspreps the currently running win7 system. But Windows 7 Recovery is currently running! You can't sysprep offline. Use the ISO I gave you. Use CD with drivers afterwards

So after enabling AHCI in BIOS it booted fine? Paragon Adaptive Restore 2010 Personal Edition Advanced Recovery wasn't needed?

Check device manager anyway!
