Hard drive moving
« on: 12. September 2017., 21:42:19 »
I was given a new motherboard and processor.  How forgiving is Windows 10 with all new parts?  Can I just move the hard drive and keep my activation?

Not forgiving at all, it wil notice the change, and that's if it boots at all

...Besides Installing Different Drivers Because Of A Different Motherboard, All You Need Is Your Business Volume License Key And Use An Alternative OS Installation Option - Meaning, Not Using The Default Option, And...

...Besides A Few Minor Tweaks On Your Desktop Screen, No Need To Reinstall Any Of Your Old Programs Or Settings.

Well, i took a deep breath, plugged it m,and Windows immediately recognized and installed new drivers and it worked.  Thanks for the input.  I figure I should reinstall Windows to finalize it, but I am not sure.
