I'm Swapping MoBos And I Need Help

My current MoBo: GA-78LMT-S2

The New MoBo: GA-78LMT-USB3 R2

 

Why you may ask?

  • Because I need usb3 ports, every other piece of tech I have us USB 3 or USB C, even my damn USB hub.
  • the S2 has 2 ram slots, I have 4 sticks of RAM I would like to be using for maximum tabs.
  • My Shiny New VR headset requires USB 3
  • My Graphics card is too damn big so I can't use an add-in card even with a riser cable.

I need to know what to do when the new board comes, I have several questions

  • Are there any drivers I won't need to change
  • Do I really need to reinstall windows
  • Can I just uninstall the drivers from device manager and call it a day
  • How do I install the drivers without a disk drive
  • Does Windows have enough generic USB drivers to work with a flash drive

now some of you may ask why I won't just upgrade to a better mobo or save money for one, the answer is simple I have been working on a solution for my VR problem for almost a week and frankly I have given up, secondly this upgrade solves a lot of other minor problems i have with my current pc. Also, I am out of money now so I can't afford anything better and I already to return stuff to Amazon, 

 

There is no such thing as too many fans, especially if you have good headphones.

You can try stick to old drivers first, see if not reinstalling causes problems

 

Again, you can try. It's possible

 

Try

 

through the internet

 

It has. USB drives dont need drivers to work either, otherwise BIOSes wont be able to use USB drives to let users flash a new one in.
