All new hardware

Hi peeps
After upgrading to win 7 I had a catrosphic failure of mobo and memory due to our cat spraying and doing other unmentional things at the rear of my PC I have ordered new Mobo Memory Graphics Etc but I am worried that when I finally get to reboot the version of 7 on the HD will not recognise this as the same machine any advice please.

You can contact Microsoft, explain the situation.
And maybe the rep will show mercy .

yes when you first boot you may get some message like hardware has changed significantly must re activate. it will give you three days.
see if everything is running smoothly cause new hardware can lead to issues in os's
