Faulty P67 mobo exchange and Windows reinstall

Hey all, it's my firs post here So, I decided to exchange my MSI P67 motherboard because of the faulty sata port issue. They will exchange my P67A-GD65 for the same motherboard model but without this error. And the thing is - will I need a clean install of my Win7? I've heard many things about it and I'm really confused

Andyparks is right. There should be no problem. I had to RMA my MSI AMD motherboard. When I reinstalled the MB, windows booted up with no problems.

I recently replaced my Gigabyte board due to the Intel chipset issue. No problem. It booted right up.

I haven't heard of anyone being forced to reinstall.

Just to help make the smile on your face a bit bigger after reading all the correct comments.

I have in the past, replaced a Tyan server motherboard with an identical one.
Hooked everything up, and it worked like a charm.

Sure did Steve, but it was a while ago, on the 11th of Feb.

finger00, i wish ALL my problems were that easily solved.
Now the Intel chipset has been fixed, you should get a good run out of your P67 setup.
