|If you have an OEM computer like Dell, Geteway, Emachines, HP, Compaq, etc. and you are using the original operating system (Windows), that SLP version of Windows is keyed to the motherboard. |
Changing the board and replacing it with a board with different properties may result in that version of Windows to no longer work in that system. This is by Microsoft design. The SLP licenses only cost a fraction of what a full license cost. The license does NOT allow migration to different hardware.
