So the differences between the 2 bios'es on installing new operating are minor i think I wont have a problem. So what im going to do is to replace the HDD and then power up the pc while dvd is in and install windows right? There wont be any problem if the pc boot up without operating software right?

Just run Windows Update, then you go the manufactere`s website of the hardware you need any more drivers for.

DON`T USE ANY DRIVER UPDATE PROGRAMS, you don`t need them, and they are not free.

Go to amd.com to get the latest drivers for your video card.
