18 months ago i changed to a NF7S motherboard. I booted from the exiting old disk and I didn't have to re-install anything because someone told me that if you change the driver for the HDD, to "generic" i think, BEFORE you do your last shutdown on your old motherboard it doesn't scrabble everything during your first boot on the new motherboard. However i cant remember how i did this! any ideas? It all worked great and it still is.
