Hi, I am upgrading the hardware of my pc but still using an AMD cpu and an ASUS motherboard (only that they are from this decade).
I’ve seen a post about upgrading from Intel to AMD that strongly suggested a reinstall, but none regarding processors from the same manufacturer.
Would i need to reinstall Manjaro if i changed from an old AMD FX to a Ryzen 9?
And to generalize the question, would an Intel user need to do the same?
I suppose i could just plug in the drive with manjaro, disable secure boot and it’s good to go?
It can’t be that easy so i supposed i was missing something.
Maybe i’d have to reinstall grub? (if so if you know a link to a nice tutorial, particolarly if in written form, it would be extremely appreciated).
Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to respond.
resources i found but i’m unsure apply to my question
post PC build upgrade edit: i didn’t even need to update grub. It just worked almost flawlessly.
I had to restart the compositor on first startup because it had some weird graphical glitches (I still have a NVIDIA GPU sooo). Turn it off then on again never had the glitches again. I have no idea why it did that but it’s not really a problem. Just a peculiarity.
I am puzzling why one would suggest a reinstall when a CPU has been changed. Make no sense. Even if it is the GPU. By default both must be installed and xorg detect plus choose the correct driver, since amd and intel have both open source driver.
No. Just switch some parameter. For example the microcode.
If it is the same mainboard and you didn’t reset the NVRAM, then yes. Otherwise you need to reinstall the bootloader “grub” or exactly: create a new UEFI boot entry , which is done by grub-install.
In general it is that easy… just the boot entry might be recreated on the new system.
