I disagree. When a motherboard is replaced (unless it is a direct replacement), at a minimum you should do a repair action of the operating system. It's recommended by Microsoft, and I have yet to run across a computer technician that doesn't agree.
Here is one.

When the critical parts of the hal are similar, there is no harm in changing a motherboard, even if it is a different brand and model.
During next boot Windows will find and install the new hardware.

I've done this numerous times succesfully, even with XP.

It doesn't always work of course, but it's always worth a try.
If it doesn't work you can always do a repair,
and in case that won't work either, well then a reinstall is in order.

I'm a computer technician - Computer Repair, Maintenace, Installation, Web Design and Tech Support - New York City, NY

And I don't agree. Like I said - I JUST DID IT, and IT WORKED GREAT.
