Yes, you need a  really  thorough,  in-depth  understanding  of  your
hardware  to perform such a task. If you additionally know some other
board very well (including the schematics) then you might  save  some
time by being able to copy parts of their configuration. Without such
knowledge, it is usually more efficient to focus on your hardware and
bring it up step by step.

Best regards,
