False. New motherboard != new OS install. I've gone through 5 different motherboards now with the same license. A simple call to Microsoft via the phone activation (takes 5 minutes) and I'm up and running.

Only the boards need to be replaced right, the processors themselves can be kept?

You don't even need to do a new install. Just plug in the HDD with the install from the old mobo into the new one, call MS, activate, done. I've been doing this since Win7 beta. Never a problem.

With the exception of where you get the board from. Board manufacturers sometimes make OEM boards that are the same as other boards in their lineup, but with different BIOS's. (Acer's AcerPower S260/Aspire SA60 used a variation of foxconn's F661GX motherboard, their only differences: Board color, bios coding, and sata ports removed from the OEM model)

OEM windows 7 requires certain code to be present in the bios, so if you swap from an OEM board, to a non-OEM Identical board, you would have a problem. though seeing as were talking about OEM, you probably won't be getting the replacement board from anyone but the OEM......

or you could go to MDL...

"False" yourself. You must have a retail copy then, because with OEM you have NO Microsoft support. I was talking about OEM copies only, which mean when you switch a motherboard with an OEM licensed Win7 copy, you'll have to buy another OS license, and calling M$ won't help you. The only exceptions I'm aware of with this is with an Enterprise/Business licenses (these aren't for sale on retail AFAIK) and educational re-sellers (Windows 7 copies sold/given away by Universities/Colleges and other student support authorities, which can let you off with an extra license if you explain your situation to them, only because they pay through the roof prices for a near unlimited amount of licenses) which I doubt many people on OCN have.

He isn't talking about Microsoft support, he is talking about the phone activation.

I have done what he said many times myself and it works just fine. I do the phone activation method where you call a number and its a voice automated service that asks you your registration key then activates you. If it doesn't activate you then it transfers you to a person and they activate you.

If the motherboard is the exact same make and model, the online activation should work if Windows 7 says you need to activate again.
