"Windows will show you a BSOD if the motherboard differs slightly."

You mean if you swap the hard disk onto a completely different chipset, Windows not surprisingly won't like it. That's a problem between the chair and the keyboard.

Next time, simply change the IDE drivers from the chipset specific ones to the default Microsoft ones first.

"Plus, you will have to activate Windows again "

Which takes about ten seconds.
