Like, does the mobo store any info that's essential in connection with other things or info that has been accumulated over time? It almost feels like I'd be losing my identity, lol. I'm just afraid of acting now and dealing with the unsolvable consequences later which seems to be with almost everything on the PS3 and a reoccurring pattern. Usually I've been able to solve problems like with any of my PCs, hardware or software, in the most radical ways but not at all here.
I see. I'm just thinking.. I did this once already when switching HDDs, the backup. It turned out fine. I just redownloaded and installed everything I did prior (didn't have SingStar at that point yet so don't know how that will turn out), but in this case, I'm also changing the motherboard. A lot of my info remained on the PS3 before I even did the restore. I'm wondering if that info is just manual stuff I entered like a username or whatever or there's more to it than that.
