The XP page was quite easy to find. But the Vista page wasn't, and I know that there is a kb about it. Oddly enough, I can't find it anymore...

The kb actualy gave the ratios between the hardware changes, and their effects on the activation.

Used to be accessible online, but now you have to join the System Builder ranks - Microsoft and OEM System Builder Licensing.

Yup, that's it - very well explained. But now try to find the actual Microsoft webpage that explains it all...

I had numerous hardware change on my xp licence, just call. For xp it is not even a person now, you talk to a machine. It takes about 6 minutes... when you install if you tell xp not to validate your install though internet immediatly, you will have 30 free days. Then you wont be able to boot into windows and will have to call.
