Upgrading Help

  Jason Hobson 17:57 13 Jun 2003


I am upgrading most of my system, but i am not buying a new HDdrive. I was wondering when i place my old harddrive onto my new motherboard, proseccor etc. Will i have to reinstall an O/S or will i be able to keep the current setup installed on the HD? Thanks

You'll almost certainly have to reinstall the OS although i got it working once by reinstalling Win Me over the top after a MBoard and processor upgrade. Didn't loose anything either...
