    The boot log file gets over written

    Sorry, yes, of course it does. Boot log is a record for the steps taken on boot up.
    This is not OS, but a record of boot.
    Your drive has Win7 configured for your old motherboard. It won't work well with your new motherboard because it is configured for the old one.
    You need to install OS freshly on bootable media and this includes many steps...locate and download your motherboard manual.

    Please locate, download and read the manual for the new motherboard.

    Windows or Linux should work from an ISO to install OS. Trying to use drive from a different system is likely issue.

    Keep us posted.

    Niot quite sure about your question... do you want to know if you can install a faster cpu with more cores? Usually, yes. Must match socket and be on the motherboard manufacturer's list (QVL) - otherwise no guaranty. Also, check for BIOS upgrades. You may have to update while still using old CPU if it will not run with the new chip until updated.
