will "Vista Activation" work on HD upgrade ?
Greetings,

i have bought and using "Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit" since almost the
first they it got released. I am loving it.
I was a bit short of money at that time and bought that "OEM /
Systembuilder" version.

I heard and read in some places that the Activation wont accept a reuse of
the key, if the pc changes too much, mostly on a mainboard change.

i would like to upgrade my hd to a Raptorx and i would like to know if the
Activation will accept that change.

Thanks,
Felipe.

Not true - just reinstall and activate by telephone if the internet
activation fails.
