  1. Your best bet is to sell the laptop, and use those funds for a new OS for the new PC.

    The license key for the laptop will not work on anything except that laptop.
    Cloning from the laptop to a new desktop will not work.

    Buy a new OS for the new PC.

    The link you posted is not a valid place to buy a Windows OS. It is akin to buying a 'brand new' iPad for $40 from some guy in a parking lot. What truck did he (or his source) steal them from?

    Popups have nothing to do with that site not being a valid place to buy an OS. And I use ABP as well.

    Where did you get the iPad thing from? I spoke to a rep and they said it is guaranteed to work or you get a refund.

    I swear I didn't mean to post spam or anything. I thought that that site was just a good deal. As said, Idk where the ipad thing came up. When i click the link it takes me to 8.1 pro.

    I said "an iPad for $40", because that is exactly the same level of 'not legit' as that site is.
    Of course their rep will say it is valid. He might also have a bridge to sell you.

    Please describe the legal business model that lets a company sell a $100 item for $25 and remain in business.
