Want to replace HP foxconn mcp73m01h1 with Asus ipibl-lb, is it compatible and will I have to reinstall windows os?
wow OS question (none stated) hard case hardware mod.
( fits, OEM COA, and HP happy questions)
Does it fit,why not try it your self., you do know ATX form factors are many right. (HP uses many, im too lazy too look up both)
so if it fits, smile. (screws and that funky back bezel for conns)
HP does not sell motherboards ever as generic or for upgrades.
Asus does in there fabulous commercial products lilne, ask.
$300 prime grade not scrap from old PCs.
I am a 100% ASUS guy.... (M5a99x,evo) 6cores, 20GB ram.
.the mobo does not know what steel case fits around it.
if it fits that ends that worry. its just a case. the fans must work sure.
you never said what OS.?? windows what, or is it linux
HP sells windows, linux,OS2,freedos and others world wide.
lets say you said w7 (a supported OS by HP and MS)
That disk by HP may not like that mobo.
why not ask HP..... most there dont know,seen that there endless.
per here, (btw,FIXYA is NOT HP,not by country miles)
what we do, as many do on such a complex matter
polices are complex. google this and endless topic ,for sure.
is use a spare, old HDD
and install to it,
if it works in a few minutes, and the HP /MS COA license
(OEM) accepted and activated at ms you are home free.
the COA sticker is on your PC< windows bla bla.
if HP is happy good(at install time, next is MS fence to climb)
if MS happy (no it wont) BUT YOU CALL THEM and tell them
on the phone, "MY MOBO smoked , please activate for the new mobo." (NO PROBLEM SIR)
I HAVE DONE THIS VAST TIMEs, not once rejected ever.
why not just use a spare say 150gb drive, parked in the dusty shelf. be self learning. test it, its harmless as a lamb.
ALL W7 or newer answers here, xp and vista are dead, zero phone calls accepted by MS.
MS trips the fail flag on major HW changes (the truth is each has a S/N)
more memory (inane for sure)
new BIOS, see mobo
upgraded CPU say from 4 cores to 6>?
the MS big secret is , they have magic weighting of the list.
I think most real HP posts say, yes and no
some will work others do not;.
HP does not publish such juicy information, would love to see it.
the real HP is here, the Real DEAL.
