Default upgrading system/ reinstalling vista.

I am about to go to a socket am2 build and will need to reinstall vista. Does anyone know if micro$oft allows users to do this? Will this get my key banned, I tried googling several different variations of the question and have found no answer so I figured the collective minds here at TF would know the answer.

I am not sure my roommate gets it free for DL from his school and he did not want to use it. So I DL ed it and installed it on my comp. I burned it to an ISO so I have the disc. I assume it would be considered and OEM copy.
