So I am thinking about swapping out my CPU, motherboard, and hd for a ssd. I know I am going to have to reinstall windows and everything but I don't want to pay another 100 bucks for a new license, so how do I free up the license on my old system before gutting it and replacing it with new parts? Can I use the same USB as before to install windows? I also noticed a little code on the box my USB came with that says that if I ever want to transfer my windows license to a new PC I have to use the code.
