MAC-Address

Hi, when you mean the MAC-Address form your NIC, then it is everytime the same. It is a hardware Address that don't change under different OS.

MAC address is embaded in to the chip at the time of factory testing, it is like serial number for your harddisk.
you can change the MAC Address in reg, no need to change it in the card itself.
