So I have a question. I'm gonna be upgrading my motherboard, cpu, and ram. I wanna reuse my product key. I looked under settings it did not say it was oem. Could someone explain to me how I can reuse it on my system. Would I install the motherboard, everything, even the ssd with windows 10 installed on it. Or is there a different way all about this?

Mostly, yes.

For the OS activation, read and do this before you change any parts:

To Answer my question, I found my Answer. Did enough Research i have a Retail Copy of Windows 10 pro. I just need too To a fresh install of windows when all this goes down, Then hit the "Troubeshoot" Button, And enter in my Email and Password that my Product key is Linked too. And boom that will be it!
