Hello Again, i have backed up my .old and .old000 Windows Folder to an EXT Drive, i then did a Clean Install as per ADD RAM

"I wouldn`t, I would just do a new, clean install on the new equipment.
And don`t install any drivers other then the video card. Then run windows update, fully. Then and only then, check device manager for any more drivers you might need.

Checked device manager and install the Remaining USB 3 Drivers

So i can now Copy my DATA from the .old Windows Folder to my new Install/profile ?

I depends on what you are coping. Do not copy any drivers or things pertaining to your old motherboard. If you have any personal data that you need to copy you can, but I would think that was backed up in another place before you did the clean install.
