Ok so let me explain my situation.
My current desktop with pre-installed OEM windows 10 x64 has a 2TB hardrive.
I plan on taking that out, and putting it into a new computer as a secondary (probably dedicated for STEAM games) media drive.
(I'm also taking out the CPU and GPU for the new build) This leaves a small form factor PC with MOBO, memory and cooling inside still for later use.
The PRIMARY (C) drive on my NEW build will be on a new 120GB SSD that I have already ordered.
Later on down the road, if I want to take that small form factor pc and bring it back to life (likely as a living room media pc) by putting a new GPU, CPU and HDD inside. Will simply reinstalling windows 10 work because the OEM windows key is 'tied' to the MOBO? If not, what other steps do I need to take? Thank you in advance fellow PC ubermensch
