Upgrading motherboard and CPU on a PC with OEM version of Windows 7 Home Premium after the original motherboard and CPU failed and was returned for refund.
I built a new PC and activated my OEM Windows 7 disk within 3 days but a week later it died so I returned the motherboard and CPU that was purchased as a combo deal and now I want to get a better quality motherboard and CPU. I also am dual booting with
Vista Ultimate 64 since I already had it and my wife uses it with an older copy of Paperport software. Windows Vista is on a 1.5TB Seagate HDD and Windows 7 is on a 2TB Seagate HDD and would they re-install using repair mode or do I need a fresh install.

The Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3Hmotherboard that I sent back has more problems (11% DOA on NEWEGG.com ) from other users than some other motherboards I am looking at so if I could activate another new motherboard with better ratings over the phone
I would prefer to do that. I could see Microsoft wanting only one PC using the OEM Windows 7 install but there should be a way to show them proof of defective motherboard change.
