Reinstalling while keeping single-installation programs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my motherboard and CPU from a Q6600 and XFX 680i LT SLI to the current setup in my sig, and (surprise, surprise), Windows bluescreens with "Inaccessible Boot Device" when I try to start.

I have no issue with reinstalling, but I have a lot of programs that I got through Microsoft DreamSpark that have license keys that are only good for one installation. Is there any way for me to reinstall the system without having to go through their support to try to get a new set of keys?

Have you tried running the Windows Startup Repair wizard from your installation dvd or thumbdrive?

Hmm, well that's a bummer. Unless you can backup every related registry entry, appdata folder, winsxs link, system32 file etc, you might be out of luck.

Is it a painful process to get new keys? It sounds like they're free.
