Ok, so I've ALWAYS been confused about this point in any sort of comp build and I want to ask this question to clear this all up.
My friend currently has a Frankenstein of a rig with a Gateway mobo with Win7.on the HDD
And for an upgrade we are looking to get a new mobo+cpu, etc.
I want to know ask is if this procedure is correct, if not please inform me:
I would get the new parts, put everything together, I have a flash drive set up to boot with an iso(that matches my current one in the HDD) i downloaded form digitalriver.
Mash on an F key, boot with flash device, then enter the serial number on the OEM CD case, OR use windows loader.
Is this right?
Thanks in advance
