With my CyberpowerPC that I'm using which is out of warranty, came a Windows 7 Disc who's label information I'll quote below. My somewhat complex yet very important question is this. If my current HDD dies & I replace it with a new one, upon inserting the OEM Windows 7 disc into my optical drive, do I simply just re-install onto the new HDD or what?
Disc Label Information: "The software included on this recovery Media was pre-installed on your hard drive at the factory and may only be used for backup and recovery of your Cyberpower, Inc. computer system. Performance of the software is the sole responsibility of Cyberpower, Inc."
The only reason why I'm concerned at all is due to other different yet related advice I received on the Microsoft forums. I've become somewhat scared to ever perform a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 because it's an OEM version. Which apparently is tied to the Motherboard in such a way that it results in massive complications.
