Am I able to use my Laptop's Window's 7 Recovery Discs for my Desktop?

In other words, am I able to use my Laptop discs (which came with the laptop) for my PC? So I don't have to go out and re-buy Windows 7.

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. No you can't. Your laptop recovery discs can only be used on your laptop, they won't work on a different make/model of computer.
  2. Best answer
    No, you can't.

    1. It will see the non-original hardware, and not install
    2. Even if it did install, it would not activate. That copy of windows is tied to that laptop motherboard.
    3. New machine = new copy of Windows.
