This isn't accurate at all. I've changed hard drives on my machine 3 times now without any issues. Windows uses a multitude of hardware serial numbers to make up its key, I assume that they made it smart enough to detect minor hardware changes (which makes it neat because that would mean you could clone one drive, slowly change hardware then clone the other and have 2 copies for the price of 1)

That is literally what I said, I mentioned the hard drive to say that you have to clone the original. That's all.

GPU doesn't have any ties to windows other than the drivers you need to put on it.

Why did you quote me? This is unrelated.

You quoted Phy " Windows uses a multitude of hardware serial numbers to make up its key, I assume that they made it smart enough to detect minor hardware changes " And you were just the last post.

Still though, there wasn't any mentions about GPUs

I guess the real question is: why are people even using keys anymore? It's extremely easy to do it other ways.

I think we've sufficiently answered this question, let's not get into a big debate about anything else. That's a topic for another place.
