    Hi,

    I've just put a new motherboard into a Packard Bell iMedia x2424 AIO,
    ....which has an Intel G31 chipset on it, and is probably different to the
    chipset that was on the ECS mobo that was shipped/in it !
    (new mobo is Asrock G31M-GS revision 2.0)

    ....so is there any way, or a best way, to restore the OEM Vista ....recovery
    discs, without destroying the working PB/Vista windows platform that was in
    it ?

    i.e. would that Vista image, when it discovers that its has been stuffed
    into a system box wth different motherboard, sort itself out, or collapse ?

    .....any tips muchly appreciated,

    regards, Richard
