From what i know a OEM version stays with a PC forever. But what if the PC breaks down and a new hard drive or motherboard is needed. Is it possible to reinstall the windows oem?

I have never had MS deny a reactivation one time when told that the system had changed significant hardware. You will have to speak to a live person for this but they have always granted one additional activation from my experience.
