I got a new machine and am going to transfer over my retail windows to it. I was curious though, when I call them for the windows activation for my new machine, what happens to my old machine with that same windows key on it? I mean, MS will have the hardware config for my new machine, but my old machine is still already validated. Is it still fully functional? or will MS restrict it in some way like not being able to get updates?
Im just curious, I am planning on wiping my old comp for pieces anyways.
As long as activation for the unit is in effect, the installation works as normal.
