The Motherboard in my emachine died, can I replace the motherboard with one form newegg and use the product key on the back of my emachine to activate windows. I have 2 universal emachine recovery disk that does a full install of windows. I know thay haft to be universal . cause the one recovery disk is from a different model e machine (One I had walmart to return cause it was defected) and works on my current emachine of a so I imagine it would at least let me install windows enough to activate it with the key on the back.

The product key goes with the disk, so as long as the install disk does not care that you have a different motherboard you should be fine.

UNLESS, the disk is an OEM version which states in the license that it is valid only on the original hardware. . .
