I am getting resady to upgrade my system with a new CPU and board. Going from Socket 939 to AM2. I have two hard drive, one just for storage and the main one runs the apps, etc. I'm running Win XP. I upgraded my system a few years ago under the watchful eye of my hardware guru buddy, and I thought I had a problem with Windows croaking, having to be reinstalled, thereby reformatting the drive.
Is this a guaranteed circumstance with a CPU/board overhaul like this? Thanks, guys.
