Hi everyone,
Apologise if I'm putting this in the wrong thread but wasn't sure where to place it. I have just installed windows server 2012 essentials OEM on an Old 500GB hard drive. I'm slightly disappointed with the responsiveness of the OS and am now considering re-installing the OS on a 120GB SSD. Will I have any licensing issues if I do so? I'm only replacing the drive and no other hardware.

You should be fine as the license is registered to you MAC address on the motherboard. Changing drives should be fine.
