A bit of a technical question...
I have a Yoga 2 13 i3 4go Ram, and i feel my laptop is a bit slow for what i need to do with it lately.
I've been searching for a new one, but then i thought, why not juste change my mainboard ?
Here you can find all the spare parts for our laptop ; https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_yoga_2_13_hmm.pdf
As you can see on page 66, we can find and order on https://www.medion.com/lenovoserviceshop/welcome all of them
Now the questions
1) can I just order a better mainboard and install it without any problem ? especialy concerning the power supply or battery ?
on the service manual there is only on reference for the heatsink and Fan, so i assume the combo heatsink/ fan should work for any proc model, what do you think ?
2) there 3 version for each main board
ZIVY0 MB UMA I suppose no W8 licence is attached
ZIVY0 MB W8P UMA I suppose a W8 Pro licence is attached
ZIVY0 MB W8S UMA I suppose a W8 Standard (familly) licence is attached
Am I correct here ?
Well then the question:
my original yoga was shipped with a W8S licence, since then I upgraded to W10, and deleted all the lenovo partition and did a fresh install of W10
what will happen if I install the new mainboard with my existing system ? I guess my win10 will say it is not activated anymore ..
will it be easy to activate it again ? I guess this question is not relevant whether the new mainboard is better or not, i guess it would be the same problem if i just choose the same one (like if mine was broken).
Do you have any experience with changing the mainboard and activating your windows ?
Many thanx for your help
