As long as you have the install disk and the key you can call microsoft and they will release the key from the broke machine, and you could install it on the machine with xp.

If the machine came with Win 7 already installed, I'm not certain you can move those version of Win 7.

if it is an OEM version, you can't just swap it, need to buy another copy of windows 7.
