you got to uninstall the game of the pc before you rebuild it otherwise you'll lose 1 of your 5 install licenses. Also, I assume that if you dont have the game on dvd already, then you will need to install steam and re download it (if you activated the game via that), but at least it'll auto patch it for your ready to play it

not sure. i'd just use windows to uninstall and then reboot pc so all records of it being installed are gone. i would suggest starting steam up after its uninstalled to make sure it notices the game aint installed again aswell.

yea backup the folder to so you dont waste time having to download all them again lol

Once you get your PC set up. Download Steam and when you login with your account FM 2009 should be already on your games list and you can simply download it.

I'm not sure I haven't looked into the whole license stuff.

I would imagine that with STEAM there wouldn't be a need for limited installs as... as far as I know... you need to be online and signed in with your username and password in order for you to be able to play it.
