  1. If you change the motherboard you will have to reactivate it. that's about it.
  2. With a 'major upgrade', you may well have to reinstall it.

    It lives on the hard drive.
  3. Actually the only thing im not changing is my hard drive

    Then you will almost certainly need a full OS reinstall.
    It will certainly need a reactivation.
    It may need a whole new OS license (depending on what it is currently). You're building a whole new PC.
