Will I need to re - install Win 7 after the new motherboard

I have a 'new' machine unfortunately screwed up. (It is refurbished, but many questions).

I probably get a new motherboard. The technology will be able to transfer the credentials to Win 7. I ask because on the Thinkcenter and my Y480 I reinstalled Win 7 NINE times and have now good things.

Basically, I really want to start rebuilding this machine with a lot of software, but if I have to reinstall after the new motherboard Tuesday I could wait as well. :-(

DRM for pointers.

For anyone following the answer is NO (less if done by the engineer).

I asked support if the engineer should be port on my serial number for the new Board of Directors (Windows now finds the system not on a sticker card serial numbers). I was told 'no '.

Of course, the engineer DID. My data has been flashed to the new Commission and Windows never saw a difference.

Another wasted a few hours back up things.

    Lightroom and Adobe knows that you have installed LR on multiple computers. A new motherboard with CPU new is a new computer. You can try to connect and then back in but may not work as you don't disconnect when the CPU & MB older has been installed. In this case, you will need to contact Adobe directly.

    I guess that your BIOS contains the option to switch between the UEFI and BIOS of the CSM.
    It must therefore return to the CSM BIOS and must disable secure boot if it has been previously activated.

    Also, I had to install the software twice on my computer before because I had to restart the computer. I don't know if this affects the limit.

    You are allowed to have two facilities activated, so it shouldn't be a problem with facilities to work on both machines.  If by chance you somehow tied up two activations for a machine you can have Adobe support help solve this cat thrue.

    Yes, don't worry if you migrate to the same operating system (Mac or Win).

    Catalogue conversion works well.

    If you plan to migrate to another computer, you need to transfer your image files as your catalogs, which means that you can use the backup and restore method:

    Organizing moving items catalogue | Elements 6 or later version

    When you use this method, the restore process recognizes if the database version is the same. If it is newer, it invites you to convert the catalog after the restoration.

    To transfer the software elements itself, you will need to:

    -Use the Help menu > disconnect deactivate your license from the old computer

    -Reinstall the software

    -use the same menu to sign with your product license key.

    I have 2 hard drives; We have Windows XP and the new one is empty (empty) installed on a computer.  I would like to install Windows 7 on the new hard drive.  How can I install Windows 7 onto the new drive while keeping Windows XP on the old drive?

    Thank you


    Sound pretty simple you just need to start from the disc and choose the 2nd hard drive during the installation of windows 7
    your xp will remain such what. every time that you start the system it will ask you to choose which operating system you need

  • BSOD when trying to install Win7 64 bit with the new motherboard

    Hi all

    I have the following BSOD problem:
    I installed a new motherboard in my system (a MSI P43 C51). Before that, I got a Gigabyte G41MT-S2P. The rest of the configuration is: Q9650, Thermaltake truespirit 90 cooler, 2 x 4 GB DDR3 1333, GTX 470, 750W PSU, case name, SATA HDD 500 GB, Windows 7 64 bit.

    Well, the problem started when I tried to boot into windows with the new motherboard: I got BSOD 1 second after windows starts loading. I thought... new motherboard, install new windows, so I tried to install windows 7 64 bit DVD and USB stick, I get the STOP: 0x0000000A error during installation. I changed the HARD drive, thinking that it could be a bad sector problem, but no, the other hard drive behaved exactly the same thing. I got BSOD at 40% extraction, extraction of 90% and for the moment "Complete the installation..." ». I also tried to install with the stick of memory only one, spent between ports, everything. The material I have works, as I played on my PC every day in the last month and received no. BSOD, also had a small overclock the CPU and the GPU (100 MHz on the processor, that the old motherboard supported more than 343 fsb and about 100 MHz on the GPU). It was stable, no errors, no nothing.

    My thoughts are only, after asking some knowledge that work in computer support, it could be a problem of version of the BIOS (BIOS is 2005..) and the fact that my Win 7 installation kit is without Service Pack 1 (a colleague told me that he had this problem for the PC more than once and after trying to install SP1 It went smoothly and without errors)

    I just got a new "blank" DVD of Win 7 64 bit with SP1. What I'll try today is to Flash the bios with the latest version and install the OS on a HARD drive new, sealed. He could not be my system components, because they are compatible and they worked 1 day before with no problems! I have literally NO IDEA what could be the problem. Today, I'll try the installation of the new DVD and with the new version of the BIOS. If this does not work, I have no idea what I can do... It is a sucky situation.

    If you have any suggestions, please, don't keep it to yourself :-D

    Thank you!


    See this thread for more information on using BlueScreenView, MyEventViewer and other methods of
    Troubleshoot the BlueScreens - top two responses.



    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

    Drivers could be at fault, however the problems of disk or security/antivirus/antispyware products are
    just as likely to be the root cause that they can force a driver to corrupt or go out of bounds.
    The video driver or something affecting it would be questionable.

    At the end of this message, I'll post a bluescreen generic and in the next convenience store
    How do to update the drivers and BIOS but also to check memory message.


    BCCode: 0a 0x0000000A


    This bug check is issued if the memory paged (or invalid) is accessible when the IRQL is too high.

    The error that usually generates this bug check occurs after the installation of the faulty device driver or service system, BIOS.

    If you encounter a bug 0xA control during the upgrade to a later version of Windows, this error can be caused by a device driver, system service, an anti-virus or a backup tool that is not compatible with the new version.

    Solve the problem

    If a kernel debugger is available, get a stack trace.

    To resolve an error caused by the faulty device driver or service system, BIOS

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. Press F8 to character-based menu that displays the choice of operating system.
    3. In the WindowsAdvanced Options menu, select last known good Configuration . This option is most effective when a pilot or a service is added at a time.

    To resolve an error caused by an incompatible device driver, system service, virus scanner, or backup tool

    1. Check the system log in Event Viewer for error messages that may identify the device or driver that caused the error.
    2. Try disabling the cache in memory of the BIOS.
    3. Run the diagnostics of equipment provided by the manufacturer of the system, in particular the scanner memory. For more information about these procedures, see the manual of your computer.
    4. Make sure that the latest Service Pack is installed.
    5. If your system has cards (SCSI) small computer system interface, contact the card manufacturer for updated Windows drivers. Try to disable sync negotiation in the SCSI BIOS, check the wiring and the SCSI ID of each device and confirming the proper termination.
    6. For devices (IDE) peripheral electronic integrated, set the built-in as only primary IDE port. Also, check each IDE device to the right setting master/slave/stand alone. Try to remove all IDE devices except for the hard drives.

    If the message appears during installation of Windows, make sure that the computer and installed devices are listed in the list of the products tested Microsoft Windows market.


    Before upgrading to a new version of Windows, remove all third-party device drivers and system services and disable any antivirus. Contact software manufacturers for updates of these third-party tools.

    General troubleshooting BlueScreen to use with the methods above.

    Look in the Event Viewer to see if something is reported on those.

    MyEventViewer - free - a simple alternative in the standard Windows Event Viewer.
    TIP - Options - Advanced filter allows you to see a period of time instead of the entire file.



    Also this, so you can see the probable bluescreens.

    Windows Vista restarts automatically if your computer encounters an error that requires him to plant.


    Here are a few ways to possibly fix the blue screen issue. If you could give the blue screen
    info that would help. Such as ITC and 4 others entered at the bottom left. And all others
    error information such as codes of STOP and info like IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and similar messages.

    As examples:

    BCCode: 116
    BCP1: 87BC9510
    BCP2: 8C013D80
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 00000002

    or in this format:

    Stop: 0 x 00000000 (oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxooooooooo)
    Tcpip.sys - address blocking 0 x 0 00000000 000000000 DateStamp 0 x 000000000

    It is an excellent tool for displaying the blue screen error information

    BlueScreens many are caused by old or damaged, in particular the video drivers drivers however

  • Transfer to install again SSD HD and new motherboard

    Hi all!

    I'm about to finally take the plunge and install a fast SSD on my PC as well as a few other updates (specifically, card motherboard, RAM and CPU). To get the most out of the SSD, I would spend my Win7 OS installation (ideally, installing new but holding to my files).
    I'm just wondering the best way to do it because I'm worried microsoft key that I think I'm installing a new PC (because of the new material) and gives me an error because she thinks I'm trying to install on two computers at the same time (when it's actually the same computer and I'm just moving disk hard/change of motherboard). Should I install the new SSD before the change of motherboard, remove the old installation of hard drive manually and then install the new motherboard, or is there a cleaner way to do this?
    Sorry for the confusing situation, thanks in advance for any advice.

    Allows the first contract with license.

    The license of Windows 7, you have now that you intend to transfer, done preloaded with the old motherboard that you will replace or is it a license purchased in full retail store?

    If it is a license that came with the older motherboard, you cannot transfer, because his attachment to the older motherboard.

    If it is a full commercial license, you can transfer and to reactivate it by phone.

    So, now that the set, lets assume its full of detail.

    I install the motherboard, install the SSD then continue to reinstall Windows 7 by using the original installation media on the SSD drive.


    How to activate Windows 7 manually (activate by phone)
    1) click Start and in the search for box type: slui.exe 4
    (2) press the ENTER"" key.
    (3) select your "country" in the list.
    (4) choose the option "activate phone".
    (5) stay on the phone (do not select/press all options) and wait for a person to help you with the activation.
    (6) explain your problem clearly to the support person.

Why is - this seems to happen after each automatic update? Cant we get 'option' to use the TAB key to navigate through the lines of address "write"?

    TAB through the fields that exist. It is the function of the TAB.

    Otherwise you could never use TAB to go out in a field for example: subject. It would create an indefinate number of fields and are unable to function as a TAB key.

    TAB does not back to THE fields,
    New crests to THE fields or donkey typing/selection enter/return address, you can use the selection of mouse click.
