I've recently been able to get access to an MSDN version of Windows 7 Professional for development use through the MSDN connection at my college.
I am planning on installing this onto a test/development machine for my school, the question I have is this.
I remember reading somewhere that the System Builders version of Windows 7 would not reinstall if it's installed onto another computer and/or if your computer dies and you're forced to replace components (because Windows "detects" that too many components have changed since it's mostly meant for OEM use).
Does the MSDN version have this same problem? If my test/development machine were to ever get some sort of major hardware upgrade would I be in dead water or would I be able to reactivate Windows 7 again? If I decide that I don't want to use a particular development machine anymore and install it onto a different development machine, would I be able to activate without any problems (this is also provided I completely delete the installation from the first development machine to follow the license guidelines).
I just want to prepare for one of those "worst case scenario" moments in case my development machines get screwed up. Thanks!
