Default Re: New Processor

Yea the OEM boards have a Certificate in the bios to allow OEM installs. Only the manufacturer can leagally place the certificate on the board so there for my copy of windows will not allow me to transfer it. Plus since i transplanted and use an OEM CD to install I no longer have the serial # for my copy of windows.

Fores: did the bios update allow for quad processors? The funny thing about the bios update is that it allows the mobo to run 8g, but the system info of the board still says 4g max lol.

Look! It's moving. It's alive. It's alive... It's alive, it's moving, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, IT'S ALIVE!
