Reusing NVMe in AMD motherboard?

Hey there!

Thinking about preordering the Ryzen 7 motherboard kit, but I’m curious if I’ll be able to reuse my current nvme (Samsung 970 Evo). I’m currently on an intel 11th gen board.

I assume I’ll need a clean Windows install and reformat, or is this a plug & play operation?



Yup you can! And yup you should definitely do a clean install!


Blockquote clean install!

Yeah, because graphics drivers would freak out.

Actually, this question got me wondering about the Windows key - OEM licenses are usually tied to the motherboard, while a retail license lets you log into the account and move it onto a new machine. I’m now wondering if we might need to buy a new license for the new board.
