Technically, yes. But if you try to use the cloned HDD in a totally different machine, chances are it would not work well... if at all. Windows needs to install itself based on the components it sees on the MB and in the system.

Not to mention the fact it is illegal to use an OEM license on a different machine than it was originally installed on.

If it didn't come with both 32 bit and 64 but DVDs, nope.
