Hey, I'm updating my pc and have to reinstall Windows. I had upgraded the Windows 7 I own to Windows 10 on my old build. My question is, as far as software/hardware goes, can I install the WIndows 7 on my new build? I read somewhere that I wouldn't be able to (because of either the mobo or the cpu), and have no idea how to verify that.

Motherboard: ASRock 450B Pro4
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600

Thanks!

Now, it will show up as unregistered at some point. You can't upgrade a Windows 7 to Windows 10 and use Windows 10 while simultaneously using the same license for Windows 7 on a different PC.
Thank you. I guess you can install Windows 10 and then use the Windows 7 key. Which I plan to do. EXCEPT, I've just started another thread in Windows 10 sub forum because my Windows 10 just booted up on the new motherboard!
