  1. Just a quick question, I upgraded my mobo and windows booted fine first time, should i repair the installation to be safe?
    Thanks, chris
    (I was getting blue screens with the old mobo, but that was [i think] becuase the mobo was faulty)

    windows must be installed from scratch with a mobo change.
    M$ will need to be telephoned to get a new key.
