Hi Macrium support
I am a single customer that has a desktop PC running W10 Pro X64 21H2 with plenty of applications, 32 GB RAM, 4 SSD (2 NVME, 2 SATA), 3 disks (one with 10 partitions, 2 others single partition)
KB Omen, mouse Razer, 2 games controllers, a Nvidia FE RTX3090 as GC.
What I want to do: redeploy my system on another motherboard.
So, What is my current state:
I run W10 x64 Pro 21H2 on an Asus Maximus X hero, processor being an Intel Core i7-.9700K
My system disk is in fact a NVME SSD of 500 GB that contains many many applications and all is fully optimized;
I use also MSFS 2020 (Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020) store version which is stored in Windowsapps.
Apart this my boot is a dual boot, one for W10 and the other for Macrium rescue medium (On each boot, I have to choose what to load, by default it is w10).
My PC is custom made (desktop PC)
Now what I want to do:
I bought a new motherboard (MSI Z890 Wifi EDGE) and a core I7-12700KF processor.
You know that this processor has now a new architecture from Intel with P-Cores and E-Cores).
The MB comes with a USB key with many drivers on it. I installed this key content on my system SSD in a dedicated folder.
How do I intend to proceed:
I remove all my disks and SSD from the current configuration, I remove the MB, I install the new MB, reinstall all my disks and SSD,
enter the Bios to setup the boot process.
Then I boot the new MB and when the dual boot occurs, I start Macrium rescue software from my SSD and try to make a redeploy from this situation.
In order for Macrium find the drivers I add the folder where I stored the USB key (provided with the new MB) in the list of folders to search for drivers.
My questions/requests for clarification:
1. Is it Ok to proceed as I described it or do I need to boot from a Macrium rescue medium (USB key)? Should I remove this dual boot before making the redeploy?
2. Do you think the redeploy will be ok with such different hardware (processors are very different, the new MB has many SSD NVME slots availables with specific components to access them. The main reason I will try a redeploy is to avoid making a complete new W10 installation that will be very time consuming considering the number of apps to reinstall.
3. If the redeploy allows the system to boot OK, will it be any further problems remaining with the system after making it running ok (CTD, etc) (for this case and in general, what is your experience about this)?
4. How does the rescue medium know about the current drivers to use with a new MB? Same question regarding the correct HAL?
5. My System disk is on a NVME SSD: Will Macrium rescue be able to detect and find this system disk?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and advices regarding my concerns.
Presently I own a Workstation version of Macrium 8.
