  1. How old is your computer, because Windows 7 is a new OS and if you already had Windows 7 running on your old computer my guess is the copy of Windows 7 is a beta copy. If that's the case, just by a new copy of Windows 7

    It depends on your license, upgrade/retail full version allow for transfers. Oem Windows license does not but you can always bust out with the pretext of a new motherboard/cpu cuz your old one fried, usually works.

    The new computer with "vister" on it should just be an upgrade with Win7. Put the Win7 DVD in the drive and run Setup... I'm not sure what phoning Micro Soft is all about, if you don't know how to do an operating system install, then take your machine to the local computer store and pay them to do the job correctly...
