New CPU/Mobo - W7 question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I will be getting a new CPU and mobo soon and was curious if anyone has reinstalled windows on a prebuilt pc? This computer was originally a Cyberpower PC. Do you think my install disc they gave me will work? I remember activating it with the product key physically on my computer. I have other ways to install W7, but this is the only actual disc I have.

I know with Vista you can reinstall OEM windows on a new rig I reinstalled it on my rig after basically replacing all of it. Literally the HDD and DVD drive were the only parts not replaced.

AFAIK, Windows keys are tied to the motherboards they were first installed on. So your key probably won't work. You will be able to install W7 with that disc no problem, but just not activate it.
