To all the lil boys out there who do not code drivers, even if the driver is the same version, you have to get the correct card because each bios is different with each card. Dunno why everyone is saying its ok to switch without reinstalling.
Calling everyone who doesn't work as an nvidia or AMD software engineer a 'lil boy' kind of says everything we need to know about you.
After imaging anything up to 50 different machines a month over the course of the last, uh, eight-ish years, I have to say that it has worked for me:
- a few thousand times
- over several generations of graphics cards from both nvidia and AMD/ATI
- across four different operating systems (obviously different images)
- without ever needing more than an additional reboot
Why exactly do you say it won't work?
Why does the driver have to match the BIOS version? Do you honestly believe that every time a motherboard or SSD vendor releases a new BIOS that your hardware won't work without new drivers?
Perhaps you would like to go back to trolling the YouTube comments pages.
Here on the TR forums we tend to burn
trolls rather than feed them; There's this generally mature rapport going on where arguments are usually backed up by facts/examples/links in the interest of actually getting something more useful than a flamewar happening. It doesn't always work but it has a pretty good track record so far....
