Upgrading motherboard and CPU.... what about my windows
I am planning on upgrading my motherboard and CPU in my computer, and while researching replacing a motherboard I read that it isn't recommended to just slap the same hard drive with the same OS, etc. onto the new motherboard. However, a new windows program isn't cheap and I was wondering what info I could scrounge up on salvaging the windows from my old hard drive (I'll prolly upgrade it to while I'm at it).
*edited* I forgot to mention I has Windows 7 :P
