Windows 7: embarrassed but need help identifying motherboard

18 Dec 2015   #31

Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1

Yes...that's what I'm thought/thinking...but I replaced my old MB in case #1 and everything started 1st time and smoothly prior to upgrade to 10 with no need for fresh copy or anything else...just needed the dvd registration code?

Previously put windows 10 on case one...think I just might do the same for this case #2. Will go again with Brinks usb tutorial for a clean install of 10...worked great & smoothly with box #1 and Win Pro 64 bit

Any addition thoughts would be appreciated if there's a better/smoother way...have Acronis image of 32 bit Windows for new can't boot problem case # 2 on external usb unless I'm missing something...will probably go with above tonight after work ?

Thanks again to all who positively contributed...TiminAz

Have registered licensed dvd of Win Pro 32 bit for this problem case discussed above so...unless I'm forgetting something....will probably reformat the drive...reinstall from original Win Pro 32 bit...bring in SP1 and then clean install

You do understand that the 32 bit OS will limit usable ram seen to under 4gb likely 3.2-3.4gb.
