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?"

Yes you can reinstall your copy of windows on a new pc
It depends if its the SAME motherboard exactly you put in...
If not you will have to talk to Microsoft Activation line and they MAY or MAY not allow you to reactivate...
