Windows 7: Upgrade motherboard advice

Upgrade motherboard advice

Hey peoples,

I just wanted some advice from people with first hand experience at upgrading motherboards without re-installing windows. I'm upgrading from my ASUS P8H61-M LE to Gigaabyte B75-D3V. Also means I can dual Sli my GPU.

Anyway, I've read that you can just swap the mobo and boot in safe mode and windows 7 will change the drivers. I've also read to go into safe mode to remove the old drivers, reboot and run CCleaner then swap and boot into safe mode.

Any suggestions or advice?

Thanks

That's great thanks Bigmck! Still easier than.i thought it was going to be :-) i'll start a new thread if i have any problems but seems pretty straight forward. Easier than saving all the registry keys like in the old days, was eadier then to do a fresh install!

Thanks
