Transfering Windows 7 onto new motherboard.
My new motherboard is coming this week. I know there are a lot of opinions out there on the internet about being able to transfer your windows 7 cd key, but I want to hear from someone who has successfully transferred their copy of Windows onto a new motherboard. How is it done exactly?

Is this the same motherboard brand/model as before? If yes, just swap the motherboards, fix up the BIOS/EFI settings and your PC should boot up just like before.

Unfortunately no, but they both are ASRock if it helps. I'm upgrading from an H67M(broken SATA) model to the Extreme4 Gen3. Thanks.

RE: Transfering Windows 7 onto new motherboard.
My new motherboard came today. ASrock extreme4 gen3 Smile. Installed it just like any other motherboard and boots up perfectly. They must use the same drivers. I checked if windows 7 was activated and yes it was. No issues so far.
