I have a new motherboard, the place thats doing the work for me because I don't want to break it told me they might ahve to reformat my harddrives to get it to boot up. I was wonding if it is neccessary for them (or if it is recommended) to reformat the drives'drive to get it to work. I have a 160 with my OS on it, and another 120 that is just storage and am willing to reformat that one, and that one alone, so could I erformat and install my OS on the 120, and use my 160 as a slave drive so I can retain my old data. This is very important to me because it contains a lot of stuff I need for my work and such.
So my main question would have to be. When installing a new motherboard, should the drive with the OS be reformated? as to be able to boot up properly?
Thanks in advance!
I just don;t want to lose most of my work and such. and would like to find a resonable solution to my problem.
