Change of main board

Will i be able to boot openSUSE and other OS on same disk after replacing main board. i wish to set raid 5 but lack additional sata ports on main board. The boards have same pci, audio and graphic hardware.

  1. Other OS? If Windows the least that will happen is that you have to reactivate, IME a lot more can happen.
  2. If the board is about the same, again IME, linuces will boot, assumed that the setup of the hardware is the same.

set up of hardware is all same, only difference is 4 additional sata ports.
