    NUC7 i5 to i7 swap - can I keep same windows install?

    cardsdoc

      Just purchased a NUC 7 i5 (NUC7i5BNH) and installed memory, SSD, win 10 pro.  Decided I wanted to go for the i7 instead (NUC7i7BNH) which I ordered and will return i5 and using same memory and SSD.  Since the hardware is almost all identical other than CPU and GPU can I just swap the SSD and let Windows identify the small changes rather than re-install everything?  If so should I re-install chipset and graphics drivers?  Anything else?  I realize I will likely need to re-activate windows.  Thanks.
