Good question, Jon, since reports have come up here of exceptions being made by MS on Builder's OEM reactivation to different hardware, even different machines.
I had always heard that there are no exceptions given for at least a mobo changeout.
But Kari had two exceptions given for full hardware change on an OEM: In-place upgrade with retail / OEM / OSB / SB versions?
Others report similar. There is a growing (false?) confidence OEM can migrate.
