Activation - Windows Vista

I was given a copy of the Feb CTP (Build 5308) at a Microsoft seminar recently. I have successfully installed, but haven't yet acrtivated as I may wipe and reinstall on a new disk, however that may take longer than is left for activaton - currently 13 days. If I do go ahead and activate my present installation, will that prevent me from reinstalling on a new disk when I eventually get one? I may also upgrade my graphics card - is that likely to impact activation? Thanks...

    Default Activation

    I was given a copy of the Feb CTP (Build 5308) at a Microsoft seminar
    recently.

    I have successfully installed, but haven't yet acrtivated as I may
    wipe and reinstall on a new disk, however that may take longer than is
    left for activaton - currently 13 days.

    If I do go ahead and activate my present installation, will that
    prevent me from reinstalling on a new disk when I eventually get one?

    I may also upgrade my graphics card - is that likely to impact
    activation?

    Thanks

    To Chuck,

    I honestly don't believe the beta copies of Windows Vista Microsoft is
    distributing at conferences has only one license. MSDN Subscribers I believe
    have a total of 10 installations with their copies and TAP customers and
    Technical Testers have about 30. So, I believe you have more chances to
    install the software on the same or other computers.

    I notice when I try to reply to your post using in Windows Mail it crashes.
    Whats up with that? :)
