I have read a lot of assumptions that say if you reinstall an OEM Vista on a new MB you can call and reactivate with MS. My question is has anyone actually done this sucessfully? Thanks.

So, I was able to transfer this copy of Windows Vista Ultimate OEM from one PC to another, but I had to jump through a few hoops to make it all happen. Is that worth the price discount of the OEM Vista versions? That's up to you!

Update 1/26/07: After some more comments in this thread of our MS Windows forum, I installed this same license of OEM Vista on a third PC using another motherboard and chipset (680i) and was able to follow the same call in procedure to get it fully activated. It seems the OEM route is looking more and more appealing!
