OWM Windows 7, and processor upgrade.

OEM Windows 7, and processor upgrade.

I am thinking about upgrading the processor on my system, and have Win 7 Home Premium OEM installed. Will changing the processor require a call to Microsoft to re activate windows? or is it a little more "hardware change" friendly?

What does the OEM license give as restrictions about changing computers, or changes to a system on which it is installed?

I don't know about a processor change, but OEM installs are normally only good for the computer originally installed on.

far as I was aware only the motherboard being changed requires re-activating.
