Reinstall Vista 32 after Mobo change?

  1. I am giving up on my Intel DX38BT board which has been glitchy from the start. Going to an MSI X48 board. Will I be able to reinstall the OS with a different board? I am sure this has been answered on here but too many search parameters for me to feel comfortable at getting an answer.

    If you have an OEM version of Vista, then technically no but if you call in to activate, sometimes they will let you. It doesn't hurt to try. If in the end you have to buy another copy of Windows, you might want to go with Windows 7.
