    Installing New Drive


    I am going to install a SSD into my desktop PC. Once info is transferred to new drive, will my version of 10565 still be activated or will I have to contact MS because of hardware upgrade?

    I just installed a new SSD yesterday and my RTM build was still activated. If you use a WMA you will be fine.

    No, because Microsoft now has a "footprint" of your computer and knows it's "legit". So, everything should be fine.
