  1. I recommend you and the person you sold the motherboard to....Reinstall windows
  2. So, What, reinstall my windows on my new hard disk, will that work? ive heard that OEM only works on 1 motherboard
  3. OEM versions of Windows 7 are identical to Full License Retail versions except for the following:

    - OEM versions do not offer any free Microsoft direct support from Microsoft support personnel

    - OEM licenses are tied to the very first computer you install and activate it on

    - OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard

    - OEM versions cannot be used to directly upgrade from an older Windows operating system
