My motherboard recently died and it is being replaced. What can I expect from WIN2k Pro when I reboot with the new M/B? I am hoping it will be the same as the one before, but in case it's not, what can I do to ensure success?
Just had to do this recently, and much to my amusement it worked without too much of a problem. The first boot up (and potentially several subsequent boots) will indicate that new hardware is found and Windows needs to reboot to complete the installation.
I have spoken with others that have done this - in some cases (primarily when the memory board technology is different) there has been some performance issues. But, if you are using the same processor and memory speed, then minor chip set variations should not pose a threat to the operation of the machine.
