So I just recieved all my parts for my build. I am going to be swapping my old HDD into my new build with a new Mobo/CPU. So will I have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows 7 onto it? I feel that if I just plug the old HDD in then I will have major BIOS issues since I used it with a different Mobo/CPU prior to.

New system , clean install - its the best way.... Plug it in first though and see if it works...

Windows 7 installer has the option to choose "Custom" and then to delete all the partitions. Best way
