    Will new mortherboard cause prior back up issues


    Currrent system 5 days ago had MR rescue boot USB made and win 10 boot screen option to MR at start up (all tested and worked)
    Performed full system backups files to external and seperate internal drives completed and verified .
    Yesterday the motherboard crapped out , so a replacement MB under warranty is proposed (same for same ) with updated BIOS to replacement board .

    Question is ,will MR boot rescue usb ,and prior system backups be reliable after replacement only motherboard .
    As a Macrium newbie it may be dumb query ,but i want to be ahead of the game .

    Since it was the same motherboard, you'll be fine.
    It would probably be wise, on the new motherboard, to make a new backup though... just in case.

    P.S. No such thing as a "dumb query".




    On a side note... make sure you have at least one, full OS image backup.
    You can also just attempt to boot from your Macrium boot USB, to see if it works.

    Thanks Ghot, well appreciated .
    Full OS has been imaged prior to MB crap out ,but will perform again as suggested . Will perform test to prior made Recovery USB ,and remake if required.
    The advice ,info and knowledge on this forum is IMO invaluable .
