  1. Hardware update


    Hi

    I need a bit of planning assistance with a proposed hardware update.

    I'm currently using Windows 10 pro 64 build 18363 on a fairly old AND motherboard. It is pretty powerful and has no performance issues but the hardware incompatibilities with modern expectations are staring to show. I'm proposing updating to a Ryzen 7 processor with appropriate new motherboard, processor, onboard display adapter and M2 operating system ssd. My data is stored on a 2TB mirror raid.

    I fully expect to be required to buy a new Windows 10 licence.

    However I want to keep the current operating system set up and all the installed programs of which there are quite a few.

    What I would like to do is simply plug in my existing SSD operating system drive, change any activation for windows 10 that is required and it works. I can then clone the operating system on to the M2 drive.

    Having just been through a very difficult few days recovering from the effects of changing the BIOS battery which needed the date and time in the BIOS resetting (no problem) but also reset the BIOS settings to factory default, which were incompatible with the SSD's requirements. (ie it defaulted to a secure boot)

    So my question is can I simply connect the operating system SSD as suggested. It currently uses an insecure boot MBR structure. Do the latest motherboards enable you to switch to insecure boot without too much trouble? Are there any other obstacles to watch out for? Are there any questions I need to ask of the choice of motherboard?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions - much appreciated.

    :)

    Intel Readies P55 Chipset B3 Stepping Update

    Intel's is readying a hardware update for its P55 Express chipset, currently the only core-logic for the company's brand new socket LGA-1156 processor platform. The new B3 stepping of the P55 PCH will bring with it a little more than new MM number and S-spec numbers. A list of changes is as follows:
    • New MM number and S-spec numbers for the converted products;
    • Firmware and minor BIOS updates are required with the conversion;
    • Processor MRC/microcode update required to enable future processors;
    • Recommended storage driver upgrade from Intel MSM 8.9 to Intel RST 9.5.
    Although it is listed that the MRC update enables 'future processors', Intel, in a statement issued to X-bit labs assured that the current B2 stepping of the chipset (found on current socket LGA-1156 motherboards) does not leave out support for any of Intel's new LGA-1156 processors that are slated for release in the very near future. The dual-core "Clarkale" 32 nm processor will be supported by both B2 and B3 steppings of the chipset.

    P55 B3 stepping is pin-identical to P55 B2, and hence motherboard vendors will not have to come up with new designs. Sampling of the new stepping began as early as on October 02, 2009, and it is scheduled for shipment to manufacturers by the 7th of December, 2009. P55 is the performance core-logic for the LGA-1156 platform. It supports Core i5 and Core i7 "Lynnfield" processors with discrete graphics.
