Will Windows recognize a replacement motherboard of the same model? Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums

I understand that Windows can get a bit...upset...if you change the motherboard without telling it, i.e. last time I upgraded my motherboard, I just whacked the new board in, and windows wouldn't boot because it thought it was a different computer...or something. If I am getting a replacement motherboard for a faulty one, which is the exact same make and model, but a different board, will I still need to do that "prep windows" thing which lets windows know you are going to be installing a new board?
Thanks,

Windows not booting after motherboard replacement
Software

My HP Elite 8100 PC was giving 5 beeps upon powering up. I suspected the motherboard was at fault so called HP's techincal support and they confirmed this. As my product is under warranty they sent me a new motherboard.
I fitted it and the PC turned on ok and I saved the new config but it does not boot Windows. It gives me the options to run 'Startup Recovery' which does nothing at all and 'Start Windows Normally' which just loops back to this option screen.
I called HP back and they say I shouldn't have had to have done anything else to enable the new motherboard to work so sent me another one and the same thing has happened.
Does anybody have any ideas?

To start with, yeah I know ... clean install is the best way to go ... Please don't go there. This shouldn't be so hard to do:
Am trying to replace a motherboard. I installed (as best I could "install") the drivers of the new motherboard in the previous environment and for those things I couldn't install (gee, that hardware isn't present ... duhhhhhh) I copied the installation files to the hdd and then copied the inf's to the windowsinf directory, just for the halibut.
I removed/disabled all the system devices I could which were specific to the previous motherboard and then shut down.
Reboot to the new and boot fails, momentary blue screen wh
