My computer has just quit on me because of an apparent motherboard problem.
I am using this as an opportunity to upgrade both the board and the CPU which are en-route as I write this. I moving up from an Athlon 64 socket 939 to a Phenom II socket AMD 3 on an Asus M4A88T-M/USB3 board.
Reading through the tutorial on transferring 7 to a new computer it appears to me that the new system will not boot or am I misunderstanding?
I assume this means that I will have to re-install everything so, should I just re-install over the existing OS or should I format the drive first?
I would appreciate any advice or observations on the processes that I need to follow to successfully get the new system working. I feel sure that the information is already here somewhere but I'm not sure where, or what to look for.
My computer knowledge and skills are very limited so I warn anyone replying that their input will probably generate even more questions from me.
