    I just got a new motherboard and processor, and I was wondering if I would have to reformat my HD in order for them to work. The mobo is a Microstar MS-6712, and the processor is an AMD Athlon XP2000+. My old stuff was some crappy intel board with a celeron 766 (it was an emachines comp). I'm keeping my hard drive for now, until I can get a new one. My OS is WinXP.

    no.

    Your new motherboard should detect the new harddrive and set itself up accordingly. when windows boots, you will just have to install al the drivers that came with your motherboard.
