*You said that the WINDOWS installation was from a DIFFERENT computer.
That's your problem right there. Most versions of Windows are "OEM" and can only be installed to one computer. You can often change a few things on the computer but you can NOT use a new motherboard.
*I'm very SURPRISED that you managed to re-Activate the serial number from a different PC.
**I strongly recommend you make a backup IMAGE of your Windows drive now and KEEP the first image, then replace the SECOND backup once per month (stored on separate drive in case of main drive failure or virus/corruption:
- Windows 7 IMAGE (okay)
- Acronis True Image (good. free version from WD or Seagate if you have one of their internal or USB drives attached)
- others (not familiar with)
