    Newish User to Office 365--System Clean install Question


    HI All

    Debating on doing a clean install when Redstone 4 releases, as a first time user of Office 365, I was wondering if i'd have to deactivate that before I do the clean install, or just do the clean install in the future, and then reinstall it, and all set

    I might need to do a clean install when Redstone 4 final based on last few months I've been switching between Avast and Windows Defender for security more than I should be, as I can't fully decide which one to stick with lol, hopefully I finally picked 1 to stay with, and I don't switch no more

    If your motherboard is the same, you won't need to deactivate it. You can just install then sign in and it'll automatically activate.

    Microsoft doesn't know or care what power supply is in use.

    I did a new install of Office 365 just on Thursday [on a different/new to them computer] and all that was needed was their E-Mail with the details and link to download followed by the install, went pretty good.
