I just did it with my wife's system a couple of weeks ago on a major rebuild. A few minutes on the phone with them and her system was up and running with no problems.
Let me know if there are any other questions or concerns you may have and please keep us updated on what happens with the new motherboard.

Maybe and probably not. While the two motherboards are very similar, they are not identical. Therefore, it is most likely when you boot to the new motherboard, the boot process will choke as Windows will see the new hardware (and there are many discreet hardware devices on a single motherboard) as a new PC and think you are stealing a copy. You can minimize this risk. See http://www.pcstats.c...t...1755&page=5
My question is since the two motherboards are the same brand would I need to reinstall a fresh windows or would my windows boot normally without any problems?
However, I prefer to do a fresh install - just to avoid those problems.
In ANY event, do make sure you back up any data you do not want lost, just in case. And also make sure you have your original disks and license key handy. Good luck and I hope that fixes your problem.
