Like the title says, will upgrading the CPU of a desktop computer cause Win10 to BSOD and call for a reinstallation? Im considering upgrading from an AMD Phenom II x4 965 to an AMD FX-8370 X8 4.3GHz, but ever since XP, Ive had nothing but problems upgrading CPUs. It caused the computer to start up in to an infinite reboot loop, either by Windows crashing while loading or load in to a BSOD and restart. Each and every time, the only solution that worked, was to format the harddrive and reinstall. :-( So Im thinking that now its been 15 years since this "bug" was introduced, maybe, just maybe, Microsoft has finally fixed it?
