So my motherboard died, bought another one, put the old memory, CPU, graphic card inside, connect HD with win 8, open computer and HURRAY! works out of the box,

no need to format/reinstall the OS, all the software, drivers.

awesome, thank you Windows 8 developers :D

minor typo in the title /(pleasantly offcourse),

maybe some mod loves me and can change it? :)

but if you hate me, don’t delete!

Yeah, it’s amazing how much progress was made with regards to stock hardware drivers and compatibility over the last couple years! I guess we all remember the debugging whenever you’d swap out a component (or even hook up a new mouse or keyboard)..

You got it! :)

@ Duru, there is nothing surprising in this, all of you information/OS/ drivers etc… were in your hard drive and changing a motherboard is like changing a memory card so nothing special about Windouz 8 the plug and play feature was invented way back.
On the other hand I never heard of motherboard falling on Mac, Never ! :)
