    New Motherboard Clean Install Y/N


    Running Windows 10 Pro Build 10166

    Got a new Motherboard coming this week to upgrade my system the Motherboard is the only thing i am changing.

    Would you do a clean install using an ISO or use the Recovery option in Windows 10 to do a clean install or just power it up and let the system do it's thing update drivers ect for the Motherboard?
