hey guys just finished my first build and my problem is the boot drive which is a velocil raptor 300gb hard drive does not work so i had to RMA it and it will come 2 weeks from now in the mean time i installed my OS in my other hard drive for me to use the computer, the OS that i bought is an OEM windows 7 profesional....so
my question is can i still intall or transfer my OS to the velocil raptor hard drive when it gets here...???
In this case, you will need to call Microsoft in order to get the software validated.
In my case, I re-installed Win7 64-bit (OEM) twice on the same motherboard and HDD. After this, I upgraded the motherboard and re-installed the OS, but this time, I had to place a call to Microsoft and get it validated.
I forgot to mention that Microsoft does not have a contractual obligation to validate in these types of situations, but they normally will do so when you explain the situation that led to the re-installation. Yours is a genuine case.
