If it's a retail copy it can be moved to a new system(motherboard), if it's an OEM copy it is technically tied to the motherboard and can't be moved. The COa sticker with the product key on should say Retail, OEM or OA. Without that you'd need to check the key with Microsoft to see what version it is.
