you're allowed a certain number of installs with win7 so yes... it shouldn't be a problem.

As long as the copy has been removed from the other computer it's ok to use and activate.If it's an OEM version it can't be used again it's tied to the other motherboard.If it's a retail copy your also go to go ahead.

You have to have a license for each computer that you have operating. If you get rid of a pc, you can transfer the license, but you can't transfer the license from a computer that is still in use.

You will have to buy a license.

Windows 8 OEM is different it can be transferred to a new computer , but only one computer at a time.
