New Mobo/ Used HDD???

  hodder 23:15 24 Sep 2003

Hi there everybody,
I have bought a new Motherboard (Asus A7v600)to upgrade my computer, and a new cpu (2500XP Barton). The question is, can I stick my existing HDD in without having to format first, or do I need to format so that I can load the new mobo software?
Thanks in anticipation,
Regards, Bob.

youll have to format it would be in your best interest to do a fresh install of your os.
