Upgrading CPU RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     

    I have a Windows License Type of OEM System Builder purchased when I bought a motherboard bundle consisting of the motherboard, memory and a cpu.  At present my system validates as Genuine.

     

    I wish to make upgrade the CPU, memory and maybe the harddrive keeping the existing motherboard.  Will my copy of Windows XP still be valid after I make these changes?

  • Yes.  You can upgrade any internal hardware, except the motherboard, and still use your OEM Windows license.
