  1. 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.

    This is not an issue with the retail version.

    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.
