if its the same motherboard type (like b550 or z470) as the old one, youll be fine to not reinstall windows.

if not backup what you need to, get a usb drive, download and run the windows media creation tool, let it do its thing, stock settings, then go to the bios and choose the usb drive to boot from.

From there, either chosoe to reinstall windows on the drive keeping personal files, or to wipe the drive and do a full fresh install.

Choose one, then let it do its thing.

then just download what you need once windows in done installing

Step 1: Download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft's website (assuming you're gonna go Windows 10). If you're gonna go Windows 11, download Rufus. 

Step 2: Get an 8GB+ flash drive.

Step 3: Run the Media Creation tool and follow the steps. Skip to Step 4 if using Windows 10. 

Step 3a: If you're trying to install Windows 11, run Rufus. Select the drive you wish to install it to.

Step 3b: Change the drop down that says "SELECT" to "DOWNLOAD" and click "DOWNLOAD"

Step 3c: Select Windows 11 from the pop up and click "Continue"

Step 3d: Select the latest build of Windows 11 (currently 21H2), the edition you want, your language, and the architecture (x64).

Step 3e: hit "Download"

Step 3f: hit start and wait for the flash to finish (can take ~5-10 minutes depending on the flash drive you have)

Step 4: Boot into the flash drive. Usually this will involve spamming either F10, F11, F12, or Delete in order to get to the BIOS or Boot Selection Menu, though I have seen more obscure keys like Enter and Escape used for this as well. Select the flash drive to boot from, and boot from that. 

Step 5: Follow the prompts from the Windows installer, selecting the proper drives and everything. If possible to avoid headaches down the road, unplug every drive that isn't going to have Windows installed on it, that way the bootloader doesn't end up on the wrong drive or you don't install it on the wrong drive in general. 

Step 6: Reboot and remove the flash drive before the system fully reboots.
