Question about the Windows 7 or 8 OS

So I am building a new PC and I am currently deciding about getting windows 7 or windows 8. So when I buy the windows 7 disk say I install it on my computer and maybe down the road I need to install a fresh new copy of windows can I use that disk? Also I want to start a PC building buisness so I was wondering if I could use that disk to get windows onto the computers. Thanks

  1. As long as it's not OEM version, you can reinstall the windows as many times as you like.
    You can only a windows license for one pc, unless it's a multi-pc license.
    If you plan to open a pc building business, i'd think about contacting microsoft, maybe you can get promotional prices, since you will probably be buying a lot of licenses.
    Take a look at this.

  2. Look at your license. You can only use your copy of Windows on your PCs. You can have a lot of PCs but you can't sell them with your copy of Windows on them.

    You can use one Windows 7 disc to install as many copies of Windows as you want to. The real issue is activating or authenticating those installs with a valid license key for Windows 7. It doesn't matter what Windows 7 disc you use to install Windows 7 or how many times you use it. There is even a website with free downloads of Windows 7 ISO files that you can burn to a DVD disc. What you're paying money for when you buy Windows is for the license key, and each different computer with Windows 7 on it needs a different license key. One per PC. But they can all be installed from the same disc (assuming they are all the same version of Windows 7, such as Home Premium, Professional, etc.).
