The OEM version is allowed to be installed and activated only on one computer and has to stay with it. The Retail or Upgrade version can be installed on a REPLACEMENT computer but not on 2 computers at the same time. A new motherboard may require Windows activation, may have to call Microsoft to do it, explain what was done.
