Hi, I want to upgrade my motherboard, cpu & memory in my computer and wanted to know if there are problems I could run into. I had a retail version of XP running when I bought and installed the windows 7 home premium upgrade version at a local store. I'm guessing I will at least have to reactivate windows and I'm worryed that after installing the new hardware windows will think it is on a new system and will not allow me to. I have a custom built AMD computer with an ASUS motherboard and will be installing another AMD processor but I'm not sure about the board yet. Thanks.
I've had no problems with upgrades. They even worked when there was no previous OS installed i.e I installed a new Windows 7 upgrade without XP.
Microsoft link the operating system with the motherboard details so if you've got a new mobo, you'll have to reactivate Windows. In the UK, I haven't had any problems here either but if you do just give MS a ring and they'll help you out.
