Windows 7: Reinstalling Win7 Home Premium OEM ?

Reinstalling Win7 Home Premium OEM ?

Hi,

I have a PC with an activated version of Windows 7 Home Premium OEM edition installed that I wish to wipe clean, ie, wipe the hard drive then reinstall a clean OS.

Will the Windows 7 Home Premium OEM activate OK via the microsoft website after the reinstall or will I have to phone up to get it activated ?

The clean install will be on the same machine as the original install but I am not sure how many reinstalls I am allowed on the same machine with an OEM version.

Thx for any help.

OEM versions are tied to the mobo...Phone activation may be required if u wish to reinstall your OS.

Most reinstalls to same hardware don't require the robocall, which deactivates on previous hardware before activation. Even it it does, it only takes 5 minutes.

Shouldn't be a problem reinstalling your OS as it's an OEM version..As long as you don't change your mobo.Other hardware changes is ok.
