Re-Installing windows 2003 server

Hi There,

I'm want to re-install my version of windows 2003 server, if I have already registered the server os with microsoft and activated it, will I need to re-activate it or call microsoft or can I just re-install it on the same machine?

If you reformat the disk then you have to reregister it with Microsoft, but that is usually no problem. You also have to reregister if you change a few of the primary components of a machine, that means cpu and video or similar

Just assume you will have to.  You can install overtop and not re-activate, but don't count on that fixing your problem.
