I was wondering if I upgrade my processor will windows allow me to do so. Or will windows think I am trying to install the os into another system. Same with a mobo.

Windows itself will not have a problem with you upgrading the processor as it is only the MB that is tied to a Windows OEM product key, there are other considerations to be taken into account though such as updating the MBs chipset drivers if needs be and making sure that the present BIOS will recognise any CPU upgrade or will the BIOS need to be upgraded first, have you checked this out, if not and you would like us to check for you let us know your MB and present CPU details and the CPU that you would like to swap in.
