The installed OS (originally WIN 7) was upgraded (by you) to WIN 10.  The motherboard is linked to that install.  Your only motherboard recourse is to locate an EXACT (HP) replacement board. Otherwise, you lose the installed OS and upgraded WIN 10.

Well "Dean", that wasn't the question was it?

 

This motherboard is beset by an unnatural number of problems and people with common sense don't want to buy a straight replacement board to continue their misery... So the question for anyone with enough money to buy a new motherboard is:

 

In the universe of new motherboards, is there another board that fits these mount points and face-plate, in this case?

 

The matter of the OS license is not part of the question and is easily remedied, don't you think?... 

 

Now, since you're an "Expert," and I am just a wandering minstrel, I shall take it upon myself to answer the question for him, and for you...

 

I'll be right back...

 

... and the answer is

 

MBD-C7Q67-O - Micro Atx - Intel 2ND Generation Core I7/I5/I3

 

The board is a "Micro ATX" (mATX) board that supports the same LGA1155 CPU on the same layout.

 

They are selling for about $200 on Amazon ...

Scott -

 

Your Pegatron IPMMB-FM/HP Formosa motherboard (dead) was based upon the "Z75" chipset.

The built-in wireless card support on Formosa was an HP design feature "ahead of the curve" versus the retail Taiwan motherboards (Asus, Asrock, MSI, Gigabyte) of that period.

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03132942

 

IF you desire to "re-use" that Intel i7-3770 processor ...

THEN you are limited to mATX motherboards with Ivy Bridge chipsets or earlier Sandy Bridge with upgrade (1155 LGA / Socket-H2)  that were first released in April 2012.

 

i7-3770 – 3.4 GHz/3.9 GHz Turbo Boost (CPU)

 

Sandy Bridge chipsets, except Q65, Q67 and B65, support both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs through a BIOS upgrade.

 

All Ivy Bridge chipsets and motherboards support both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs. Ivy Bridge based processors will officially support up to DDR3-1600, up from DDR3-1333 of Sandy Bridge.  USB 3.0 was not supported (native) with these chipsets.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155

 

Majority of manufactures only produce their motherboards (active production) for 1 to 2 years.

The Z75 motherboards you will find (Newegg, Amazon, eBay, off-lease/chop shops, surplus stores) will be New Old Stock, or Used / Refurbished.

I have a Pavillion HPE h8-1360t Desktop PC.  I wanna replace it to Xeon based motherboard which supports DDR4 memory. 

 

Motherboard data:

  • Manufacturer: Pegatron
  • Manufacturer name: IPMMB-FM
  • HP: Formosa
  • Form factor uATX(9.5"x9.5")

Iis there another Xeon based motherboard  that fits these mount points, face-plate, back-plate and fits PCI-E slots positions for this case?

 

No any matter of OS license or CPU usage, just exactrly and only a matter of hardware math.

 

Thank you.

Hi vehf277,

 

This should be pretty easy to find based on your requirements. I searched up a quick example from Amazon ...

 

https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-E3-1200-Motherboard-GA-X150M-PRO-ECC/dp/B01AG8WL5C

 

This one is Xeon (1151) with DDR4 and will fit in your case.

 

Measure the actual dimensions of the space in your case rather than following board specs since you have slightly more than 9.5" to play with. The rear plate will come with any new board and the holes/slots will line up because that's one of the things the Form factor defines.

 

Good luck and I hope this helps 🙂
