You'll have to use disc imaging software that will make a complete image (copy) of your hard drive. A computer can boot off an image so you'll keep everything that was on your hard drive, including settings, files, and programs. Doing so however to another computer/motherboard can cause problems because the drivers for the new hardware may have conflicts with the drivers on your old set up. I guess you could uninstall all of the old drivers first, but I'm not entirely sure how well that would work.
The only software I know of that does that is Acronis, but it's not a free program. Maybe someone else with more experience with this thing can help you more, sorry.
