I have now bought an upgraded motherboard and CPU.
Before I format my hard disk and reinstall Vista with the new motherboard/CPU, I thought I should double-check that I will be able to install Vista again.
Technically, the OEM license doesn't allow the software to be installed on "more than one system", but what exactly constitutes "a system"? Only the motherboard and CPU will change, nothing else - but does the new motherboard mean that it is a new system?
I will not be running two computers with the same Vista product key, only one.
Basically, will it allow me to activate Vista using the same product key, but on the new installation?
