I've got a new motherboard coming on Monday and plan to upgrade my HTPC that I built last spring from an ASUS MB w/ Core i3-530 to an Intel MB (DH67BL) w/ Core i3-2100T.
I was wondering if anyone has tried such an upgrade and whether it was possible to do so without re-installing Win7 from scratch. Ideally, I'd like to hook everything up and just fire it up... dealing with various driver issues after the fact (ie. the Intel MB has Intel NIC whereas the ASUS MB has Realtek NIC). The video drivers for the Core i3-530 seem the same as drivers for the Core i3-2100T so I think I'm good there.
Reading the Intel site, there seems to be a big issue with the 64-bit Intel HD Graphics drivers and HDMI displays, but I'm not sure if the same issue exists for 32-bit (currently running Win7 32-bit). I guess I'll find out. At any rate, I have some older driver packages laying around that I can use (there are reports that 2291 doesn't have the HDMI blue-screen problems).
Just thought I'd ask if anyone has attempted a similar upgrade with the new SB stuff finally readily available and if there's any advice you might offer. I'll certainly report back with my findings as I attempt this early next week.
