recovering config question ???
I just encountered a motherboard failure ... and stupidly ( I admit ) lost precious data on the HDD.
some days before, I had made a full backup on an external HDD.
As my motherboard was a bit old ( an Asus P8H61+ ), I can't/don't want replace it by the same model - I know I can find some refurbished ones on Ebay - because I still hade a brand new P8P67 home ...
so, I tried to restore it with the same internal HDD , same processor, but the new motherboard.
Restoring ever fails.
Sooo ... my question is: MUST I restore aboard the same Hardware I used to make the Backup copy ???
Somewhat interesting question about something supposed to save data ... I didn't find anything related on this forum.
Thanks for the Help ...
