Hey everyone, *I have 0 experience installing windows.
I’m looking to completely restore my computer, wiping it blank and re-installing my old disc of Windows 7 in hopes of reorganizing it and getting a slight performance increase.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I've heard that you’re free to re-install the same disc of windows as many times as you wish relying on the fact that it’s the same machine.
Here’s where my question comes in, 6 months from now when I plane on changing out the motherboard along with some other new parts, will my PC still be recognized by the windows disc as the same machine? Will I have to buy a new OS for the "New Machine?"
