I wanted to get another motherboard but my exact model is rare and not currently available for sale. GA-ep35c-ds3r is the model.
The model I did see for sale is the ga-ep35-ds3r. These boards seem to be very similar however the one I have has both ddr2 / ddr3 slots while the other only has ddr2 . Will this board still work and be able to boot my drive? Also was there another way to boot the drive?. When I have tried other computers I get a driver issue of some sort. Very frustrating

Of course a HDD will not boot on a machine other than the one you installed on.. it' won't have drivers, video res, a whole bunch of issues.


is this your mobo?  http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2740#ov


If you have a HDD Caddy you could your data that way.


you'd have to get the same motherboard (including the revision)  and even then it may ask for drivers.
