post #671 of 4923
Anyone think that if I install the beta tomorrow and then next week re-install Windows and the beta on my new SSD, that it will give a hissy fit?

I know you can only use the code once, but I never know quite how it works? Will it mind if I change the HD and re-install Windows?

That will be fine. Your beta key will link to your EA account. When you reinstall Windows just reinstall the beta and log in with your EA account.

EA should be paying me to answer all these questions

Dedicated server pre-orders are starting to pop up. It might be that the game is new or the site is just expensive but 1.95 per slot seems like a little too much.
