    " In anyy case, this violates the EULA." - what makes you think like that? There is no hardware tie anymore. Inside the EU, there never was.

    Do you mean there is no hardware tie in EULA?

    No hardware tie. You may transfer the license to different hardware, that is why MS has added this activation troubleshooter option. It is just for that: transfer to a partly different hardware. I am not saying that it will work with any completely new hardware, but the reasoning OEM=hardware tie is incorrect. In the EU, this practice was condemned illegal long ago.

    How about a different motherboard, which I mentioned in post #16?

    Look, this is a tutorial, not a discussion about legal aspects of certain license types :-)
    This discussion and all the info is on the net, tons of it. You may transfer a license anytime as long as you don't have it installed (and in use) on two devices at the same time.

    I cannot speak for all regions, I am not a lawyer. You may want to search the internet for info on that.
