Re: Changing MB and CPU - reinstall of Fedora needed?
Quoting Christopher Svanefalk <christopher.svanefalk@xxxxxxxxx>:
I will be moving from an AMD FX-8120 to an Intel i7 3930K, which of course means I will be changing my motherboard as well. All other relevant system components will stay the same (including the HDD and any data on it). I just wondered if Fedora can accomodate the new hardware directly, or if there are any procedures I should go through after booting again? Could a reinstall be needed? I am guessing I will not have a problem booting, since Grub is installed on the MBR of the drive, and I believe the new MB will search this first for a bootloader. Thanks in advance for all help!
you HAVE got a current full backup haven't you? and if you do I'd say have a go at it, Fedora has been very resilient for me.
