Re: Replacing Motherboard & Possibly moving to Windows 7
Nice choice on the mobo. yes, you will need to format and reinstall everything. Use Gparted to do the formatting (look for the guide here on TF).
I am running Win7 64-bit ad have no problems running anything so far. I don't bother with really old programs anyway, so it's not a problem. I run BFBC2 just fine, BTW.
Win7 has compatibility mods so you can have it run a program as an earlier version if need be.
