This problem can be solved by editing the registry files or by integrating drivers at the stage before replacing the motherboard.

Windows 7 configuration methods in this context vary, depending on the specific situation. In particular, is this carried out immediately before replacing the main board, or after an upgrade at system startup accompanied by BSOD.
