I have the three license Family Pack version of Win 7 Home Premium. It's a retail copy. I've used all three licenses. I'm planning hardware upgrades on one of those machines, including a new motherboard. In addition, because I'm doubling the RAM from 2GB to 4GB, I'd like to go to the 64-bit version of Win 7 instead of the 32-bit version currently installed.
My question is if I use the 64-bit disc that came in the pack, will I be able to reactivate Win 7? Or does the fact that the hardware upgrades include a new motherboard mean that a new version of Win 7 is required? I'd save $100 if I didn't have to buy a new copy.
I've searched but haven't been able to find an answer to this exact scenario. I hope I've posted to the right forum. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
