A couple of years ago i bought a PC with Windows 7 installed. Later i upgraded it to Windows 8 from original disk (full version disk).
Now i want to buy a new PC without installed OS. I have an ISO file of the same Windows 7 version that i had on the first computer before upgrading to Windows 8.
Is it possible to install Windows 7 on the new PC and use my old activation code of the first computer?

If it is OEM, then no. It's locked to the old system if it's being used or not.
