    Hardware Upgrade, Have two questions

    I'm placing the questions first, then I'll let you know what is going on.
    1) My new motherboard has WiFi. My question is it can't connect to my WiFi
    until I enter my password, right...
    2) Windows 10 needs an internet connection to see a hardware change, right...
    The reason for the two questions is because I want to keep using my PC till
    a new water block I just ordered comes in, looks like it will show up in 5 days.
    I got a new motherboard, CPU, GPU, Ram and m.2 Pcie mvme drive and have a good PSU. I also
    have a clone of my C drive it's a copy of the PC I'm on right now.
    I put the above pieces together and it posted just fine.
    I want to connect the SSD which contains the copy of my windows 10 to the hardware
    I just bench tested. Because I can get a lot done while I'm waiting for the piece I ordered
    The thing is, I don't want windows 10 to see I have new hardware installed until I
    put all the pieces in my case.

    Windows will detect the new hardware whether it is connected to the internet or not. As soon as it does, it will de-activate.

    Thanks NavyLCDR, Well I guess I'll have to wait for the cooling block to come in order to proceed any further...
