I have two win7 PCs. What I would like to do is remove the HDD of one the PCs and add to the other one so that I just have one PC.
Now I know that I can't JUST add the HDD as it has an OS on it as well. Also I'm guessing I would have to format the drive before I can add it? And I need to keep all the data on the hard drive that I need to move. I would like to work with the data on both the PCs but only under one OS.
I hope I have explained myself properly haha
So I'm feeling a bit lost as to how I should go about doing this. Please help!
Having another pc's windows hdd on another pc isn't illegal at all, it's common for troubleshooting. The reason being he's not using the software nor the key. But if he were to boot to that hdd, if it's an oem key it will deactivate itself anyways. If it's retail then it's transferable and won't matter. So either way, you don't have to do anything.
