I am making the swap from AMD to Intel in a leap from the A10-7890K to the I9-9900K. My enquiry is, do I need new drives for the new Bios setup. Or can I use my original drives and keep all my data?
backup your personal files so that you can install windows fresh on the new machine
You absolutely *must* do a full reinstall Windows; there are major differences in HAL used for AMD vs. Intel processors and chipsets.
