i have just installed a new motherboard/cpu/ram and i am just trying to start windows 7 from an existing hard drive, with it already installed. i have heard that if windows 7 was pre installed on your computer then it will not work. is this true?
if needs be, i have a brand new copy of windows 7 that i can make a new start from
question 1. how do i make a new install of windows 7 if it wont boot in the first place
question 2. will i be able to keep my programs/files on this hard drive?
if anybody could help me i would be forever in gratitude
mobo: biostar n68s3+
cpu: amd athlon ii x4 3.0ghz
os. windows 7
