Do the replacement motherboards sold on ifixit come with the operating system installed or do you have to install a new operating system once you replace the motherboard?

Good instructions but not complete. My replacement motherboard was delivered without the cameras. I had to remove the cameras from the old motherboard and install them in the new motherboard. Then install the new motherboard.
