New computer, old hard drive with windows 7.
I plan on building a new computer soon and was wondering if I could use my old hard drive with windows 7 installed on it (32-bit), reformatting the hard drive, and re install windows 7 64 bit with the same disc. I've looked around but I'm still not sure if windows allows me to do this.
Jaxem said:Yes, you'll be able to do this, a single license key lets you install either 32 or 64 bit. If it's an OEM copy you'll probably need a new key, but a retail key will only require a phone call to get an activation ID at most.
So new key means I have to spend another $90 for another disc? I hope, mine's isn't OEM
