Your copy of Windows may be legal but posting questionable content like crackers (which often contain trojan horses, malware, and root kits) is against the board TOS.
I'll... shave that cat.

I got modded for just talking about ripping out ROMs from a game you bought.

Typically the license is tied with the motherboard in some fashion. But could be reactivated with the code or in some cases whatever windows/ms account you can link.


Exactly what I was thinking. It's serial locked to the motherboard, so you are fairly *****ed if you use the license on it. Buying the same mobo won't make an iota of difference. Talking with customer support, and explaining that your IP, and that all the same harddrives are attached to said MOBO, may get results.

Talk with customer support. That said, if its an OEM license, its non-transferrable. If its a retail license, you should be able to move it. You don't know if you don't try.

I changed my Office 16 license a couple of days ago without any hassle (spoke with their customer support and got it changed from being bound to my Asrock Z97 board to my new Asrock Z370 board....it took twenty minutes to do, but its done now. Take a crack with MS support...they aren't great, but they aren't terrible either.
I am the instrument of providence, she will use me as long as I accomplish her designs, then...she will break me like a glass.
