Hi Hungto1985,

I believe you can change motherboards so as long you stick to using that copy of Windows on one computer, and not multiple computers, as per the terms of service or EULA (end-user license agreement) you agree to when installing Windows.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
no you need to buy a license not product key.
Microsoft warns at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/howtotell/Shop....
Beware of Product Keys Sold Separately
With the exception of Product Key Cards (PKC’s) distributed with COA’s, Microsoft does not distribute products keys as standalone products. If you see a listing on an auction site, online classified ad, or other online page advertising product keys for sale, it’s a good indication that the keys are likely stolen or counterfeit.
And please note, there may be a problems with activation after 5th hardware change unfortunately.

Hi
AFAIK you can change upto 5 motherboards if you buy a Windows 10 licence from Microsoft Store.
